Using AdminStudio Repackager Command line options to build .ism and .msi from existing .irp file

Summary

New AdminStudio Repack.exe command line options to build ISM/MSI files from an existing IRP introduced in Adminstudio 2013 R2 SP1.

Synopsis

New AdminStudio Repack.exe command line options to build ISM/MSI files from an existing IRP introduced in Adminstudio 2013 R2 SP1.

Discussion

When attempting to use previous command line options for Repack.exe in Adminstudio 2013 R2 SP1 you may notice that ISM and MSI files are not created when attempting to build an already existing IRP file. In addition snapshot capture may begin when this was not requested in your command line.

This is due to some slight changes made to the command line options.

Workaround

To build an MSI and ISM from an existing IRP file using the Repack.exe command line options the following command line should be used for Adminstudio 2013 R2 SP1:

<Path to Repack.exe> -aacb <Path to new ISM File> -o <Folder containing inc/irp files> -pp <ProductName> -aacbuildonly -sb

note that -aacb is used instead of the previous -b option. Also -aacbuildonly is used instead of the previous -buildonly
