QA: MSI Interview: Explain the difference between Property and PROPERTY


Q: Explain the difference between Property and PROPERTY

ANS:

  1. Public Property:

Public properties can be changed anytime by a user, system or admin on the command line while installing, by applying a transform or by interacting with the authored user interface (Installation Interface)

They are always in upper case

  1. Private Property:

The installer uses then internally and their values are initialized in the installation database (msi) or set by the values determined by the OS.

Private property names must always include lowercase letters. (Thanks Alek for correcting)
