The Import XML Settings Wizard enables you to add a reference for an XML file to the XML File Changes view, where you can configure the changes that you want to be made to the XML file at run time.
Important:The XML File Changes view is not designed to list a node for every node in an XML file. To improve performance, the XML File Changes view should show only the settings that differ from the base XML file:
|•||If the XML file that you are modifying is part of your installation, the XML File Changes view should list only the nodes and node sets that should be added, changed, or deleted after the XML file is installed at run time.|
|•||If the XML file that you are modifying is a file that is already present on the target system, the XML File Changes view should list only the nodes that need to be added, changed, or deleted at run time.|
Therefore, when you use the Import XML Settings Wizard, import only the nodes in the XML file that you want to modify at run time.
Note that the XML File Changes view does not enable you to specify the order in which new elements should be listed in the XML file. Therefore, importing only the nodes that you want to modify at run time helps to avoid issues that may occur if your product requires that the elements be listed in a particular order.
The wizard consists of the following panels:
