Creating a Package

MSI Package Builder allows you to create packages in different formats, such as MSI, MSIX/AppX, and App-V. The packaging process is similar across different formats; for instance, the same method applies to both repackaging installations and editing package contents, though each format has its nuances.

This chapter provides information on how to create packages in different formats and explains the unique content and settings for each format, including configuring MSI installation contexts for per-user and per-machine installations, the use of MSIX fixups, and more. It also covers how to apply configurations common across all package types, such as digitally signing packages.
