Dynamic Content not updating the text replacement
When you add Dynamic Content to your XML files, the actual source file is modified by Wise to include a comment, such as
<xmltag><!-- WISEMETA: default="[Property]"--></xmltag>To add Dynamic Content, go to File Details ->Dynamic Content tab.
How ever for our installation which uses dynamic content, below are the steps to reproduce:
1. Create an installation that has 2 Features.
A) Each feature (F1 & F2) were created with conditions on them, and are linked to checkboxes.
2. Each feature installs a config file.
A) F1- Test1.exe.config
Both config files have dynamic content enabled.
When running the installation, if the default (both features installed) both config files are installed and the text is replaced correctly. However, if either of the features are installed alone, it does not update/replace the text.
Wise Installation Studio 7 SP1
If a file containing dynamic content is not installed (for any reason, i.e. conditions on a component, the feature that contains it is not installed...), the following files that contain dynamic content are installed however the dynamic content they contain is not updating.
If possible install the application with both features. Otherwise no workaround at this time.
