Reading the Feature.xml or Elements.xml file that has been installed to sharepoint
What I want is to be able to see what has been installed to sharePoint, not what is on the hard drive in the Features folder. For example I had some properties in my Feature.xml file like this:
<Properties> <Property Key="LibraryName" Value="Custom Images" /> </Properties>
After installing and activating the feature I noticed some properties were missing, so I added the properties to the Feature.xml file.
At this point what is installed to SharePoint is different to what is on the hard drive. I know I have to remove and re-add the feature, but I need some way of reading what has been installed for troubleshooting purposes.
