How to get XML File Changes to work in InstallShield 10.5

Problem: XML File Changes feature is not properly updating an element's content to a [PROPERTYNAME] changed value. This can be found by navigating to "XML File Changes" -> Click on a node -> click on "Advanced tab"

Workaround: First set the content to "[PROPERTYNAME]" (with qutoation marks), build it, and then remove the quotation marks, and build again.

Note: This is a bug and it's not known why this workaround actually works, but it does.
