Software Deployment Question

Adding batch script to package

09/22/2008 4494 views
Dear Pals

I am a newbie in packaging field. I packaged McAfee Virusscan 8 successfully. I also need to add path for repository in package which would be V:\. I installed application with all settings and noticed that SiteList.xml which is located under %Allusers% stores all the repository information. I am thinking it would be easy to just replace SiteList.xml with one with all settings to get this package configured. I can use a batch script that can replace SiteList.xml after executing package. Is there any way i can force to run this batch script to run after package install using wise package studio.

Thanks in Advance

Yes there are diffrent ways to execute a batch file after installation.
You must have heard about Custom Actions in Windwos Installer Technology. Using these custom actions your MSI can execute your batch file after inatallation. Follow the below steps-->
1. Add the batch file to your installer.
2. Create a immediate custom action --> Type = 34, Target = <BatchFilePath> and Source = "SystemFolder" sequenced it after "InstallFinalize".
