Use this page of the Installer Properties dialog box to enter the version, dialog box settings, and company information for the installer.

This page includes the following components:

  • Product version—Specifies the current software version number. The installer uses this number to check for a current installation and to check for upgrades. You must increment the version number if you want to create upgrade versions of the installer that are capable of overwriting previous installers. The product version corresponds to the [ProductVersion] Microsoft Installer (MSI) property. Use the Get Build Specification Version VI or Set Build Specification Version VI to programmatically return or set the version information for an installer. Installers only contain or return Major, Minor, and Fix version numbers.
  • Auto increment product version—Automatically increments the product version number each time you build the installer.
    Note  Save the project after you build to ensure that LabVIEW automatically increments correctly the next time you open the project.
  • Company name—Specifies the name of the company, which appears in the product listing in the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog box. This option corresponds to the [Manufacturer] Microsoft Installer (MSI) property.
  • Company URL—Specifies the website of the company, which appears in the product listing in the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog box. This option corresponds to the [ARPHELPLINK] Microsoft Installer (MSI) property.
  • Company contact—Specifies a contact person or other contact information for the company, which appears in the product listing in the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog box. This option corresponds to the [ARPCONTACT] Microsoft Installer (MSI) property.
  • Company phone—Specifies a phone number for the company, which appears in the product listing in the Windows Add/Remove Programs dialog box. This option corresponds to the [ARPHELPTELEPHONE] Microsoft Installer (MSI) property.
  • Upgrade code—Specifies the upgrade code that Windows uses to identify the installer. If you duplicate an installer and you do not want the new installer to replace the previous version, generate a new upgrade code. If you want the installer to upgrade, do not change the upgrade code.
  • Generate—Randomly generates a new upgrade code in the Upgrade code text box. Click the Generate button if you do not want the new installer to replace the previous version.
