[wix-users] Data Type for Property

A Windows Installer Property is always  treated as a string.

In order to determine that a registry value shall be written as integer, you can use the Type attribute of the RegistryValue element.

Betreff: [wix-users] Data Type for Property

Is it possible to associate data type for properties in WiX? Let's say I have to write a RegistryValue element of integer type whose value will be captured from the dialog and will be passed on to this element through a property. If I associate a string based property to this element value, if it is of type integer, then it is throwing error. Please advise.
