Hi,

I want to wrap MSI and MST into a single exe. How can we create the exe using Installshield?

Please advice.

Thanks in advance.

IS isn't an EXE creator in that sense. You could build a batch file or some other script and conevrt it to an EXE: there are innumerable tools available to do that. You will want to ensure, however, that the underlying script is totally bullet-proof.

However, why not just embed the transform in the MSI? See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa368347%28v=VS.85%29.aspx and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa368351%28VS.85%29.aspx

Ramesh,

Check out the Tuner in the Adminstudio Tools (9.5 in my case). After creating/opening an MST you should be able to create a setup.exe from the Package tab. This should include your MSI and MST.
Give it a go and let us know if it's what you're looking for.

Rgds,

Thanks for the reply,

Currently we are following the embeding/applying the transfrom to the MSI like VBScab said. But we want to change the process. Even i tried creating the setup.exe using tuner like pieter said. But still we can see/modify the MSI or MST. I want to create a exe so that nobody can see or modify the MSI or MST. MSI and MST should inside the EXE.

Thanks.
