VI Package Manager (VIPM) > Using VI Package Builder

Package Filename

The Package Filename properties page of the VI Package Builder window allows you to define a custom filename for your package.

Figure 68 - Package Filename Properties Page

The name used in this field is a unique identifier, similar to a GUID. This identifier should be unique to your package and should not be changed throughout the life of the package. The VIPM install process uses this name to identify your package. If you rebuild your package and release new versions, VIPM will automatically see these new versions as upgrades to the old package.

If you change the VI Package Output Filename then this upgrade will not happen but instead VIPM will treat it as a new product install.
