I'm successfully creating a .msi file using Heat to generate my file list -
very cool (yes, I'm a novice and easily impressed J).
This is my heat.bat:
heat.exe project "<path to>\ wpfApp1.vbproj" -pog Binaries -gg -g1 -out
"<path to the setup project folder>\HeatFile.wxs"
When I run heat.bat my resultant HeatFile.wxs has the following Id's:
But the corresponding lines in the default product.wxs are:
In the 'directory fragment': <Directory Id="INSTALLFOLDER" Name=./>
In the 'feature fragment': <ComponentGroupRef Id="ProductComponents" />
I tried to use -dr and -cg switches to change the HeatFile.wxs Id values to:
<DirectoryRef Id=" INSTALLFOLDER ">
<ComponentGroup Id=" ProductComponents ">
but nothing changed.
When using Heat, does "harvestType = project" combined with -pog switch
override the -dr & -cg switches?
Is there a place in the documentation that explains a little more detail
what's happening here?
Finally, is there a technique to get Heat to give me the Id's I want, or do
I simply have to edit the product.wxs to get the Id's to automatically match
