Repackaging a software that automatically updates itself.
Ok, I have a vendor that does not deliver any msi. The source media is a set of files and
I have used Wise Package Studio for repackaging. Fine, it works well at start.
The software includes a shortcut, placed in Autostart, that polls the external server (vendor server) for
any updates. After any given update, the result is that my msi performs self-repair.
Is there any way to perform a repackaging with WPS, and disable self-repair?
(No, to use DISABLEADVSHORTCUTS is NOT the solution. I have tried it and it does not solve
my problem. The reason is that some parts of the application is not triggered from a shortcut.
Some part are triggered from within the application itself).
Or do you have any other suggestions, for a solution? I can´t remove the update shortcut
from Autostart. The vendor distributes its updated files throgh that application. And the vendor
does not provide any msi at all.
If i could perform a repackaging in WPS, to get a msi without self-repair function, that would be a solution.
