Hey guys,

I've looked in the past for a list of WPS 7 vairables that I can use in my packages. Is there an extensive list somewhere for this? Now, I'm not looking for Windows Variables. For example, if I write down C:\Program Files in my package, Wise will often replace it with [ProgramFilesFolder]. I'm looking for more of these variables.

Now, again, I've looked on google and multiple PDF's, and only thing I seem to find is variables used by Windows.

Thanks for the help!

Steph

You are referencing Windows Installer Properties - have a look here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370905(VS.85).aspx

WPS variables are quite different - the values can be set during project setup then used throughout your workbench packaging process as and when required:

[ApplicationName]
The current project's Application Name field in Project Setup.

[FileName]
The current project's File Name field in Project Setup.

[Notes]
The current project's Notes field in Project Setup.

[PackageName]
The current project's Package Name field in Project Setup.

[PackageStudioDir]
The directory in which Wise Package Studio is installed.

[ProductVendor]
The current projects's Product Vendor field in Project Setup.

[ProjectDir]
The current project's Project Directory field in Project Setup.

[ProjectName]
The current project's Project Name field in Project Setup.

[Sharepoint]
The current share point directory specified on the Workbench Preferences dialog > Repository tab.

[SoftwareManagerDSN]
The Software Manager database that is associated with the current share point directory.

[VendorPackage]
The current project's Vendor Package field in Project Setup.

[WorkbenchDSN]
The Workbench database that is associated with the current share point directory.

I only know of a few...i'm sure there are more similar to this, but i've never seen a full list of variables specific to WPS

[Version] - Version number in the Product Details section (Project Definition)
[Date] - current date at time of launch
[Time] - current time at time of launch
