How To Create MSI Package

This guide shows you the most basic approach to create MSI package.



PACE Suite enables you to create MSI package via various approaches: repackaging (meaning capturing system changes), creating an MSI from scratch, which, in turn, includes two options:
  • Creating a blank MSI package in MSI Editor and managing not only files, registry, and shortcuts, but also services, permissions, custom actions – any setting the package can have.
  • Creating a project that is limited to adding the most basic resources: files, registry, shortcuts.
The latter is the easiest approach and we will review it in this guide. You can find more advanced approaches on our website.

Recently, we have greatly enhanced the speed of creating MSI packages – even very large packages can be generated in short periods of time. After packaging, you will be able to find your MSI installer in the project folder – the path to it is specified in the MSI file name field. Your MSI package will be ready for deployment. In this folder, you can also find the project file and its resources. You can open the project at any time, update the resources and generate another version of your package.
