Source Control Tab
InstallShield 2009 » Options Dialog Box
Edit the settings on the Source Control tab of the Options dialog box to control how InstallShield interacts with your source code control program. All of the settings on this tab apply to every project the current user opens on this system.
The following options apply to both Windows Installerbased and InstallScript-based projects unless otherwise noted.
- Use dialog for checkoutWhen this check box is selected, a checkout dialog box is displayed when you check out a project through InstallShield. If this check box is cleared, InstallShield automatically checks out the file without a comment when you select the Check out project when edited check box or if, on the Project menu, you point to Source Control and then click Check Out.
- Get latest version when opening the projectSelect this check box to retrieve the latest version of your project from your source control program when you open the project in InstallShield. If you do not get the latest version, you might edit an older version in your working directoryif someone else modified the project file that exists in source control in the interim.
- Check out project when editedSelect this check box to have InstallShield automatically check your project file out of your source control program whenever you modify it in InstallShield. If your project file is not checked out, it is likely read only and you cannot save changes to it until you check it out.
- Add new projects to source controlSelect this check box if you want new projects automatically added to source control upon creating them in InstallShield.
- Use XML format when creating new Windows Installer or Mobile based projectsWhen this check box is selected, XML is the default file format for Windows Installer or mobile device projects you create using the New Project dialog box. If this check box is cleared, binary is the default file format setting for Windows Installer or mobile device projects. You can change the projects file format at any time by changing the Project File Format property in the General Information view.
When a project file format is converted to either XML or binary format, the project file extension remains .ism.
The Use XML Format when creating new Windows Installer or Mobile based projects option applies only to Windows Installerbased projects.
Specify the name you use to log on to the source control project.
