Good Day ITNinjas, 
I been assigned to package 7z1600-x64.exe but i am  struggling to find or locate MSI file after installing the source file[7z1600-x64.exe].I have tried searching under: \windows\installer,%temp% & doing a global search for .(dot)MSI.

So before i take a snapshot or taking a silent EXE install approach...would like to make sure that there's no MSI put down when doing the .exe installation.

there used to be an MSI for the 64bit version, but looking at the site now, it seems as if this has been discontinued...
You have two options:

You have three options:

1. Repackage it to an MSI, in which you can customize it
2. Install is silently (AFAIK /S) and let the end user set it up as required (viel spass!)
3. Go to the sourceforge site (here) and download the msi

  • Just had a look at the forum regarding the MSI's... after reading them I go for option 1 ;-)

[MSI's] MSIs

>go for option 1
I can't see a single thing in them that would be problematic. Indeed, I'm using the more or less identical v15 ones at my current client.

Much of the comment has little to do with the MSIs but with 7Zip in general. Or maybe I haven't read enough posts... :-(

Check the website again too, they released a new build already (:

  • Hi Rileyz,
    just checked... http://www.7-zip.org/ only two exe's (x86 - x64)

    My bad, I've just had a look at the sourceforge page... you are right..

    • New build realise, 16.0 to 16.02 or something like that (:

      I like the update comments: some bugs were fixed.
