Following are the steps
1) Launch the windows installer editor in wise package studio
2)Generally the window appears which asks for the kind of package you want to start
3)Select Windows application in it. The bank package opens.(DONT DO ANY CHANGES IN THE MSI)
4)Save the package save with <PackgeName>.MSI
5)OR if the window specified in the point 2 does not appear then go to file and select new the window will appear.

But i can't find the file what i savedSooooooooooooo...you didn't use the 'Browse' button to get to a known folder? Brilliant...

IIRC, Wise defaults to saving in the root of the drive which is mapped to the share point. Clicking 'File/Open' should produce a common dialog, open at that root. Your MSI should be there.

I'm also wondering what the point of saving a blank MSI is...

Lastly, I'm wondering why you have posted your question in the 'Application Virtualisation' forum, rather than 'Package Development'.

After following the above steps as metioned in my 1st reply
When you get the Save As window press the desktop button on the left of the window.
In place of file name type BLANK.MSI
In place of Save as type select "Installer databases(*.msi)
Then press the save button
You will get your blank msi on desktop
