[MSI] Edit file detailsΒΆ

Edit details (name, identifier, installation folder, component, attributes, etc.) of the file from the File table in the MSI package.


Precondition: Open an MSI package in MSI Editor (see Open MSI/MST).

  1. Go to the Package Designer > Files and folders tab.


  2. Select Properties from the context menu of the necessary file.


  3. Update the required values (e.g. file name, installation folder, attributes, etc.). Afterwards, click Save.


    Changing the installation folder for a file that belongs to the multifile component leads to creating a new separate component for that file. This is because in MSI the file installation location is defined by the component.
