None permitted

Data contents

String that specifies the name of the file that contains a watermark bitmap that DPInst displays on the left side of a welcome page and a finish page. The watermark file must be located in the DPInst root directory, which is the directory that contains the DPInst executable file (DPInst.exe), or in a subdirectory under the DPInst root directory. If the watermark bitmap file is in a subdirectory, specify a fully qualified file name that is relative to the DPInst root directory.

Duplicate child elements

None permitted

Remarks

A watermarkPath element is customized, but not localized, if it is a child element of a dpinst element. A watermarkPath element is customized and localized if it is a child element of a language element.

The following code example demonstrates a watermarkPath element that specifies Data\Watermark.bmp as the source of the watermark bitmap that DPInst displays on the left side of the welcome and finish pages. The text that specifies the custom watermark bitmap file is shown in bold font style.

<dpinst>
  ...
  <watermarkPath>Data\Watermark.bmp</watermarkPath>
  ...
</dpinst>

If a watermarkPath element is not specified, DPInst uses a default watermark.
