1GB exe and 500 mb MSI depends on EXE

Created: 30 Apr 2014 • Updated: 12 May 2014 | 4 comments

Hi All need This solution.

I have 1 GB exe and 500 mb MSI depends on EXE. So I need to package this and also do transform for that 500 mb MSI.

That 500 mb is included in 1gb exe.

This is one type of scenario on Application Packaging and Repackaging.

Thank you.

Please let me know if I have understood you correctly or not:

1. You have a msi that needs an exe to be installed before it is.
2. The exe already contains the msi that reqiires it.

If the above is correct, simply deploy the exe.

If the exe and msi are seperate, then repackage the exe, and then deploy both via the sw deployment tool of your choosing.

You can of course deploy the exe without repackaging it.

You could include a command in your transform which will run the EXE install from within the MSI, as long as the EXE does not have an MSI embedded in it.

As SK has noted, we really need to understand whether the 500Mb MSI is within the 1Gb EXE or is a separate application.
