[MSI] Move files/foldersΒΆ

Move files or folders to a new location in the MSI package.


Moving 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.


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

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


  2. Select Move to folder from the context menu of the necessary file or folder.


  3. Select a new destination location and click Select.
