Hello Guys!
here package http://downloads.sourceforge.net/sevenzip/7z465.msi
default silent installation not associate 7-zip with file archive formats (7z; zip; rar; etc)
but I must do it.
Can this be done with installshield?

p.s. i can create Custom Action that executes after installation and add registry values as described here:
http://wpkg.org/7-Zip#MSI_Installer_package.xml.2C_sets_7-zip_as_default_archive_application
but perhaps there is more polite way?
thanks.

The simplest way is to export the file registrations from RegEdit to .REG files then import those into a transform which you can then apply to the MSI from the command line.

What detail do you need? Do you know what transforms are and why you would use them? If not, I'm afraid I'm going to stop there: I don't have time to teach you.

I know I'm not VBScab, but here you go

1) open your MSI, make the necessary changes, choose file -> save as.. as type choose Windows Installer Transforms and give your file the .mst extension

2) see 1), this would fall under those necessary changes, go to registry view, right-click -> import REG File

3) msiexec.exe /i <path to your MSI> TRANSFORMS=<path to your mst>
