VB Script error when trying to increment the Property CDVersion in InstallShield
I have created a new Private Property in my InstallShield project called CDVersion, with the value I would like to use a VBScript to increment that number just like the one that is used to Increment The ProductVersion. I have tried to modify that script, but I get an error at line 19, (Object doesn't support this property or method: 'objInst.CDVersion')

Is there a way I can get this to work?

' create the InstallShield Developer automation object

Set objInst = CreateObject("ISWiAuto14.ISWiProject")
' for InstallShield 2008 (use SAAuto14.ISWiProject for standalone)

' use "ISWiAuto12.ISWiProject" for InstallShield 12 (use SAAuto12.ISWiProject for standalone)

' open the project file

objInst.OpenProject "C:\My Setups\Trios2_Release\Trios2_Release.ism"

' this code demonstrates incrementing the CD version number

' retrieve and split the CDVersion

verArr = Split(objInst.CDVersion, ".")

' increment last field

verArr(UBound(verArr)) = CStr(verArr(UBound(verArr)) + 1)

' update the project

objInst.CDVersion = Join(verArr, ".")

You would need to ask the InstallShield vendor.

Well, I not very familiar with VB so I wanted to knowif the script was setup to properly increment the number just as the script that increments The ProductVersion

Not sure if you are still working on this, but the Automation interface you are using there does not expose all the properties in the property table, just a select few.

To do this, you will need to use the Windows Installer Automation Interface where you have access to the entire database. InstallShield's help has step-by-step guide in a kb on how to use that interface.
