I'm new to packaging
I just started playing around with InstallShield
I have file maker pro 7 that already has msi, I want to put License key,company name, registration information into the msi, somehow, so that these messages don't come up every time the user runs the application

Welcome Appdeploy.

You need to create a transform for that MSI. A transform (MST file) is basically a copy of the tables in an MSI that windows installer will use to install with.

In AdminStudio, open Editor, and Go to File>New> and select transform. Be sure to check the "Create response transform box". This will launch the install, and record everything you enter in the fields.

To then install the msi using the transform run the following:

msiexec /i "<path>\name.msi" TRANSFORMS="<path>\name.mst" /qb+

Check the this for more info on msiexec.exe and MSI in general:
