    Hi John123, I'm afraid I may be not understanding you correctly. Could you provide us with more information about what you want to achieve?

    Suppose installer have file named A.properties that having content by default

    RecordID= 1 UnitName= unit1

    after installation, the user does some operation and the A.properties appended

    RecordID= 1 UnitName= unit1,unit4,unit5

    Now we create a new installer that has some new features and A.properties content by default is

    RecordID= 1,2 UnitName= unit1,unit2

    if the user upgrades with new installer after upgrade the A.properties content should be

    RecordID= 1,2 UnitName= unit1,unit2,unit4,unit5

    Means we want new changes as well as user changes in A.properties after the upgrade.

    I have the set the <overwritepolicy>onlyIfNewer</overwritepolicy> for my XML file.

    Hi John123, you could use the <propertiesfileset> action to write out property values to a properties file. You can find more information about this action in our User Guide: http://installbuilder.bitrock.com/docs/installbuilder-userguide.html#_write_property_file_value
