Please let me know the Reason/ way , whats the use of 2 .ism files, i know one is for to repackage to .msi.
Sometimes is it necessary to repackage a Windows Installer package before you can successfully virtualise it. When some Windows Installer packages are repackaged, some of their data (such as files or registry entries) are excluded according to the normal Repackager exclusion settings. For example, files destined for the \Windows\installer folder are typically excluded. However, this type of information is occasionally necessary in order to successfully convert a Windows Installer package to a virtual package. To address this issue, when Repackager builds a Windows Installer pacakge, it now produces two .msi files: packagename.msi and packagename.context.msi.
