After repackaging an application, do you find it a pain to go change 10 different settings inside of the Windows Installer Editor? Here's a tip that's sure to help.

You can take your company standard for these settings and change their defaults. For instance, if you wanted Windows Installer Editor to always create an EXE instead of a MSI, you would follow these steps:

  1. Open your Wise Share Point\Templates folder
  2. Open the "Windows Application.wsi" file
  3. Click Installation Expert and then Build options under the Release definition section.
  4. Change your setting.
  5. Save and close your wsi file

From now on, all of your repackaged applications will use your new defaults.

This is the first thing you learn when starting to use Wise Package Studio... If you look at the Initial Workbench setup, there are a lot more settings that you should really customise before repackaging is commenced
