How to use property Upgrade Code in detection method "Windows Installer"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I am a packaging specialists helping our deployment guys to add our software (100rds of installers) as application entries in SCCM 2012. The methods supplied by SCCM seem however quite generic and limited.

    The detection method "Windows Installer" is hardcoded to use the Product Code, why?
    Normal detection of Windows Installer packages are done using the Upgrade Code and the Product Version. Is it possible for us our self to add/reconfigure to use that method or are we forced to use the custom detection method?(both those methods should be provided by SCCM to better match Windows Installer architecture)

    Ps. It says in http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb632336.aspx for Version that "This must be in the standard Windows Installer four-part version number format.", but the version number is 255.255.65535 (which is real stupid) as described by http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370859(v=vs.85).aspx. Ds.

  • There is no available option to modify the configuration. We will need to use the custom script detection method. the default detection methods are limited.
