Patch Creation

Hi

How to create standard patches in MSI projects? The patch should be installable and uninstalable too.

Thanks for help in advance,

Regards,
Sobhan G

Creating patches is fairly simple process if you plan and prepare properly.
Firstly create a full msi for your minor upgrade and test it thoroughly. This package should install properly everywhere.

Now in the Installshield IDE you can create a Minor Upgrade item in the
Media --> Upgrades --> Prepare Setup for Upgrade Scenarios.

You will have to provide the uncompressed msi packages of all old versions which you intend to patch.

Go through the following link:
