When we create a Windows Installer file by using Visual Studio .NET, we do not have the option to designate that your package is to be advertised.

We can advertise the package only by using a command-line option during the installation. At the command prompt, we can explicitly list the features that we want to advertise or we can advertise all the features.

To explicitly list the features, we must use a command that is similar to the following:

Msiexec.exe /i {PATH}\.msi ADVERTISE=Feature1,Feature2,Feature3

If we want to use this command, the features must be present in the Feature column of the Feature table in the Windows Installer file.

To advertise all the features, we must use a command that is similar to the following:

Msiexec.exe /i {PAth}\.msi ADVERTISE=ALL
