Record Field Description


Full Usage: Id

Field type: string

The name of the variable.

Field type: string


Full Usage: Overridable

Field type: YesOrNo

Set this value to 'yes' in order to make the variable's value overridable either by another WixVariable entry or via the command-line option -d= for light.exe. If the same variable is declared overridable in multiple places it will cause an error (since WiX won't know which value is correct). The default value is 'no'.

Field type: YesOrNo


Full Usage: Value

Field type: string

The value of the variable. The value cannot be an empty string because that would make it possible to accidentally set a column to null.
