Hi all ¡¡¡
I have 2 files, a setup file and msp file.
I want to create an msi with the msp included...
1º)For this i use the command msiexec /a setup.exe and this create a folder with some files, and one msi file named setup.msi.
2º)After this, i use the command msiexec /a setup.msi /p file.msp and i use the same destination folder i had used for the administrative instalation(first step).

Ok, now i make my doubts:

1º)Now its the msi patched? If i execute setup.msi i install the programm and his msp¿¿¿???
2º)I need now use install shield to create the new msi with the msp include???

Thanks for your answers ¡¡¡¡

If you apply the MSP on an AIP then the MSI (in the AIP) would include the MSP.

When an AIP is created the files will be "converted" to uncompessed external files.
If you make sure to keep these files (directory structure) with the MSI then you don't need to re-compress them.

I think what you mean is that if you execute the .msi file set to a different directory that was extracted would not work. Its necesarry recompress using install shield.

However if you stay in the directory that all files are uncompress the msi works...

I have a problem AngelD, i extract the content of setup.exe with AIP i "patch" the msi with the msp...
Afther this, i try to recompress the files but i have errors with install shield...
Do you know a good software to recompress the files?

Thanks ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡

Sorry, I'm not fully understanding your goal.
Why not leave it as-is?

If you would like to re-compress the files I guess IS would do (I don't use it) but remember to set the Words SummaryInformation property to non-administrative image.

This would be a quite quick task by using InstEd with its File Manager plug-in.
