cmd generate Productcode + BuildID's iterate

Post by rowa » Tue Oct 20, 2020 12:59 pm

Hello

we use Bamboo to poll a GIT and trigger a build when changes are made. Unfortunately it is not possible to assign a new GUID via the command line. We cannot run patch because our path lengths cause the FDI server to crash during import. Furthermore there is no possibility to assign MSI BuildIDs and to iterate automatically. Since we don't want to count up a new version when fixing the bug, because the software comes from a different team, it doesn't make sense to iterate the version, but rather to provide it with a BuildID.

If you can do that, we will order a floating license with maintenance.

1.BuildID's + iterate
2. Generate GUID product code via cmd

Hello and welcome to Advanced Installer forums,

In what regards the BuildIDs, please note that this is against Windows Installer ICE24 which recommends only digits to be used for the ProductVersion property.
The value of the ProductVersion property is the version of the product in string format. This property is REQUIRED.

The format of the string is as follows:

major.minor.build
The first field is the major version and has a maximum value of 255. The second field is the minor version and has a maximum value of 255. The third field is called the build version or the update version and has a maximum value of 65,535.
In what regards this:
2. Generate GUID product code via cmd
Please note that this is achievable through our /SetProductCode command line parameter.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
