Creating Packages that Install Faster
The common practice inside most enterprise environments that I've seen are to create one large MSI for any size application. Here's an easy way to make those packages install faster.
If you compile your applications with the "Cabs Outside" option, your packages will install 50% quicker compared to "Cabs Inside".
To do this for all packages, just go into the Windows Installer Editor template you're using and go to Media and change the option to "Cabs Outside".
