I had created a package using wise installation studio. Now i want to create a add-on package so that user can install the add-on if required. Is it possible to create such add-on package using wise installation studio. Can anyone please guide me how to proceed further.

Thanks & Regards

You can create an MSP that will update your current installation and add whatever option it is you're looking for.

For example, you have example.msi with just the Complete feature:
- Complete

But now you want to update example.msi to have a More feature:
- Complete
- More

To achieve this, use your example.msi to create an example2.msi with the More feature in it. Then run Patch Creation wizard and use those 2 files to create your patch.MSP.

So, you now have your MSP that you can apply to your example.msi and it will add the More feature with whatever components are within it.

Not sure if that's what you're trying to achieve or not though :)

IIRC, adding a feature to a product qualifies as an upgrade, rather than a patch.
