Encryption and decryption of the installation

Hello

I have one problem with InstallShield.
I want to encrypt software during creating .msi file in InstallShield, than when user will run installation process of application .msi file should automatically get decryption key from remote location and decrypt application to install. How can I cope with it?

Best Regards

Hello,

I think that you can't encrypt your software during the creation of your installation package with a Basic MSI project.

I think that you must encrypt your software before building your installation package. And use a Custom Action or a post-installation program to decrypt your software.

Best Regards.
