Operation: Version Files Editor

Version Files Editor can be used to Add/Remove files from version's Components, to set different file attributes necessary for difference / patch building or update installation.

 

 

Version Files Editor main window consists of 3 subwindows:

· Version Image Browser window - used to navigate through Version / component image files;
· File Browser window - used to navigate through files on your system and to add them to component images;
· Properties window - used to set properties necessary for difference / patch building or update installation.

 

Version Image Browser

This window can be used to view version components,  folders/files, to set/observe their properties or to add folders/files to components. To set file property - select it in the appropriate Version Image and then change necessary property value in the Properties window.

 

File Browser

Similar to Windows Explorer. Use this file browser window to navigate to the appropriate file(s) or directory that you want to add to the active Version Image (which you have selected in the Version Image Browser).

To add files or directories to the active Version Image select appropriate files / folders (as you do it in Windows Explorer) and drag&drop them to  the Version Image window. If you use right mouse button then selected files/folders are copied into the Version Image and if left mouse button is used - then you can select from either you want to make a hard copy, move the selected files/folders or to copy only references/links to them.

 

Tabstops header on the top of each window allows sorting of the file list by Name, Date and Size by clicking on the appropriate header. Clicking a second time on the same header reverses the order. Arrow to the left of the header text shows the sort direction.

 

Properties

 

All properties are divided into 2 main categories: Old Version Side and New Version Side.

Properties of the first category are used during compilation of the difference between versions when selected version is considered as an old one, while properties of the second category are used during compilation of the difference between versions when selected version is considered as a new one.

 

Df build Options and Add/Replace Options subgroups are covered by the 2nd category.

 

Each property can have its own value or it can inherit (by default) the value from a Parent object (valid for all properties except Version Key).

 

If property Value is prefixed with ' $ ' symbol - it means that this property inherits its value from a Parent object.

Select <Inherit> option in the list of available values for selected property to make this property inherited from a parent object.

 

You can set properties values simultaneously for several elements which were selected in the Version Image.
