Attributes
Name Type Description Required
AboutUrl String A URL for more information about the bundle to display in Programs and Features (also known as Add/Remove Programs).  
Compressed YesNoDefaultType Whether Packages and Payloads not assigned to a container should be added to the default attached container or if they should be external. The default is yes.  
Condition String The condition of the bundle. If the condition is not met, the bundle will refuse to run. Conditions are checked before the bootstrapper application is loaded (before detect), and thus can only reference built-in variables such as variables which indicate the version of the OS.  
Copyright String The legal copyright found in the version resources of final bundle executable. If this attribute is not provided the copyright will be set to "Copyright (c) [Bundle/@Manufacturer]. All rights reserved.".  
DisableModify YesNoButtonType Determines whether the bundle can be modified via the Programs and Features (also known as Add/Remove Programs). If the value is "button" then Programs and Features will show a single "Uninstall/Change" button. If the value is "yes" then Programs and Features will only show the "Uninstall" button". If the value is "no", the default, then a "Change" button is shown. See the DisableRemove attribute for information how to not display the bundle in Programs and Features.  
DisableRemove YesNoType Determines whether the bundle can be removed via the Programs and Features (also known as Add/Remove Programs). If the value is "yes" then the "Uninstall" button will not be displayed. The default is "no" which ensures there is an "Uninstall" button to remove the bundle. If the "DisableModify" attribute is also "yes" or "button" then the bundle will not be displayed in Progams and Features and another mechanism (such as registering as a related bundle addon) must be used to ensure the bundle can be removed.  
DisableRepair YesNoType This attribute has been deprecated.
