Hi There,

We're using 6.0.3 (5001). I think that's the latest..

In my experience, I've found that Marimba does support MSI deployment and provides a wide range of MSI options. Maybe not as much as some other tools, but a lot of them.
Can you give an example of a "custom action"?

Hi akhlaque,

Mauricem is right about the broad range of MSI options in Marimba. In fact the Marimba's Application Packager itself provides has a wizard which allows you to package a Windows Installer database into a channel and ready for publishing to the Marimba server.

To package an application using this tool, you will need to know the name and the location of your msi fileand the support files it requires. It will then be captured by the packager. Once done, you can now configure your package to run in different options like setting up in complete silent, with progress bar, reduced and full UI. YOu can also put some Windows Installer's properties and parameters on it.

For almost 4 years in packaging with it especially with MSI packages, I haven't seen any problems with the installation with regards to Custom Actions during deployment because the package is first downloaded in the client's workstation before the execution of the installation. By the way, there is also a space for your scripts inside the Marimba's packager and you could also put your scripts there to be run before or after install, repair, verify and uninstall.

Marimba is a good packaging and deployment tool and you can even integrate it as a web based portal for your users where they can manually get their hands easily on different softwares available in the company. I just don't know the price of it as compared to other competitors and why it's not gaining as the number 1 management solution for the enterprises today. Can you provide the stats? =)
