Project:This information applies to the following project types:
Note that some differences between properties in Windows Installer–based projects and that in Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI projects exist; these differences are noted where appropriate.
The Windows Installer, Advanced UI, and Suite/Advanced UI engines maintain global information using properties. The Property Manager view displays a list of installation properties that are used by the Windows Installer engine or the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI engine at run time.
