suite project wrapping
hello installshield community.
i want to wrap msi project within installshield
however when i try to add msi package (.msi)
there is'nt any, the project itself is 'ism' format and it wont build that.
how can i export my wrapped project as 'msi' format (the installation itself is exe format)
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: https://docs.flexera.com/installshield25helplib/helplibrary/SteCreatingSuites.htm
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?
