Deploying a small MSI update
We have an MSI deployed that has some start menu shortcuts that we require to change the targets. From looking here: http://kb.flexerasoftware.com/doc/Helpnet/installshield12helplib/MajorMinorSmall.htm it appears this would be classified as a "small update". What's involved in creating a small update for deployment to existing systems? According to that same page I will need to change the package code and that's it. Is the correct practice to create an MSP that increments the version and contains the modified shortcuts? Also, for modifying the existing MSI for new installations, do I simply modify the shortcuts, change the package code and increment the version?
Modify the shortcut location.. Add RemoveFile (In InstallMode.. i.e., 1) table entry for the already delivered shortcut.. Install your updated msi as shown below MSIEXEC /i "MyNewMSI.msi" REINSTALL=ALL REINSTALLMODE=voums /qb
