Wilcard in paths?

Postby rev23dev » Fri Aug 11, 2017 5:18 pm

I'm trying to make more use of NuGet packges in my projects. But it's causing some complexities for IA that I was hoping you could give me some tips on.

So lets take this package

..\packages\Newtonsoft.Json.10.0.3\lib\net45\Newtonsoft.Json.dll

I want to include this file in my installer. But any time I update this package, I would have to update my IA project to change the version number. So, Ideally I could have it use a wildcard on the 10.0.3 bit, but nothing I'm trying is working.

Any advanced tips I could use here? Thank you!

Dear Rev23dev,

you cannot use wildcard just to alter a portion of that path. You may eventually, use #Compiler-Variable# to assign that part of the path.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks Francesco,

I'll just copy those somewhere else. I know there is a lot of power in IA I don't utilize so thought there might be something cool like that :)
