AdminStudio 10 / InstallShield 2011

In InstallShield 2011, is there a way to include the files within the MSI rather than in a CAB file or are the files always outside the MSI?

You will have to re-generate the MSI and include the files you want. In AdminStudio you have the option to include the files in the MSI or allow them to be placed in a CAB file. Good Luck.

Ok, so I am not crazy (well no more than usual anyways) in thinking that I don't have to have a cab file. I went through the release wizard, but all of the options produce a cab file. Would you happen to know where the setting is to have the files contained within the msi?

To provide a bit more detail, when running the Release Wizard on an ISM file (which, if you don't have one, you would have to recreate from the msi ), one of the options is what to do with the files (internal/external cabs/external unsuppressed). Creating a network image and selecting 'compress all files' has always created MSIs with internally streamed cab files for me.

When I run through the release wizard, I only get 3 options, Compress all files, Leave files uncompressed and Custom. Either the files are compressed into a CAB or uncompressed and left as files.

Tried your suggestion and it worked. For some reason, I had to start the project over again for it to work.

Thanks
