Attributes
Name Type Description Required
After String Id of the search that this one should come after.  
Condition String Condition for evaluating the search. If this evaluates to false, the search is not executed at all.  
Guid String Component to search for. Yes
Id String Id of the search for ordering and dependency.  
ProductCode String Optional ProductCode to determine if the component is installed.  
Result Enumeration Rather than saving the matching key path into the variable, a ComponentSearch can save an attribute of the component instead. This attribute's value must be one of the following:
directory
Saves the parent directory for the component's file key path; other types of key path are returned unmodified.
state
Saves the state of the component: absent (2), locally installed (3), will run from source (4), or installed in default location (either local or from source) (5)
keyPath
Saves the key path of the component if installed. This is the default.
 
Variable String Name of the variable in which to place the result of the search. Yes
