Web.Config Change ConnectionString Value

Oct 15, 2009 at 10:27 PM

Hello, I need a help to configure wxs file,   I Set property RequireSQLDatabase to 1, but I need that web.config and the connectionstring change according the Server, User, Password parameters typed in the Database setup window.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi mauricioP,

take a look at the documentation starting at section "XML Example (e.g.: web.config)":

"...This is an example of how to use WIX to set a connection string in a web.config file during setup..."

it is about editing the .wxs file adding an application setup step to modify a web.config file at a specific section (to be found by an qpath query) like e.g. the connection string and update it with values taken from the setup.

If you encounter problems let me know.

 

cheers,

Bernhard
