MSI Packaging

The MSI format, supported by all modern Windows versions, is notable for its silent deployment feature, enabling automatic installation without user interaction. Given its compatibility with various software deployment and distribution tools, the MSI format is an optimal choice for repackaging installations for automatic deployment.

MSI Package Builder supports the creation of MSI packages in all its editions. You can use automatic repackaging to convert non-silent installations into silent MSI packages, or manually create and customize packages. MSI Package Builder enables the creation of packages of any complexity, including wrapped installations.

MSI Package Builder offers advanced MSI creation features. The following chapters will guide you in their practical use. You'll learn how to configure MSI package properties, create per-user and per-machine MSI installations, and develop MSI packages targeted at specific languages.
