Suite Projects by design are an executable file that wraps installations within it. 

You cannot build and release a .msi release with a suite project - a suite project will always build a setup.exe. A full explanation can be found here:

If you want to build a .msi installation you will need to use the BASIC MSI project type.

I hope this helps.

i refered to the internal msi projects i wrap with the suite.

the msi is saved them as setup.exe.

the guide says i need to add msi formats to the suite.

can it work also with the setup exe?
