I have been asked to package differnt type of formats, I am still new to packaging so here it goes.

I have been givin some .bat and .ttf format application to package, the company would like me to package these to application so that it would install with one hit install process. I know that if i can have these applications turned into MSI i can create a .bat file to have these install one after another without clicking each one. the question is are these applications packageble. I have only worked with .exe files before this.

Also I am useing Windows 7 64bit VM's, and the packager I am using is Wininstall Pro.

any comments and help are welcome.

You can also use the appdeploy repackager...

This can be done using an MSI.

For .Bat files, whatever commands ar written in the file, you just need to run the command using custom actions in MSI.


.TTF files are fonts.

When you install a font, all that you actually do is to copy the concerned .ttf file to the %systemroot%\fonts (in most cases that would simply be C:\windows\fonts) and add an entry in under the registry key

"HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts". 


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Fonts]

"fontname (TrueType)"="filename.ttf"
