Auto-Update XML Defined

  • <update>

    The root node. This is a tag.

  • <extension>

    Text that contains the extension name. This is a tag. The extension name appears in the Extensions tab of the Options dialog box. Examples of extension names are Oracle Predictive Planning Extension, Disclosure Management, or Adjust Data.

    Attributes of <extension> are:

    • id

      The extension identifier. The identifier must match the SVExtensionDescriptor.GUID defined in the extension. It does not need to be a GUID, it only needs to be unique. This name will appear in the Windows Registry. For this reason, Oracle recommends using readable identifiers; for example, Oracle.Disclosure.Management.

    • version

      The version number of the extension.

    • location

      The location and file name of the extension installer file. This can be msi or svext; exe is not supported.

    • operation

      Optional. For Auto-Updates, set this value to “delete” to have the uninstall automatically begin when the user opens Office.

      Note:

      The first time a user opens Office, if Smart View determines that the extension needs to be uninstalled, the subsequent opening of Office initiates the uninstall process.

    • options

      Optional. For msi installations only. All options for the Microsoft Windows Installer Tool, Msiexec.exe, are supported.

    • visible

      Set this value to “1” to display the extension in the Extensions tab of the Options dialog box. When this is set to “1”, the extension will NOT be part of the Auto-Update process.

    • allowUninstall

      Set this value to “1” to display the Remove button in the Extensions tab of the Options dialog box.
