As one of those rookies just beginning to study packaging, this tutorial very clearly explains the process. Thanks for taking the time to include so many screenshots, as those were extremely helpful in clarifying your written instructions. Thanks a bunch

If you're just starting in the "wonderful" world of application packaging, I would recommend that you read up on Windows Installer technology as opposed to learning the ins and outs of using the packaging tool. There's no point knowing how to use the packaging tool if you do not have any idea of the end product.

Here's a link that may help. John McFadyen's Blog

The blog talks about basic and some advanced Windows Installer technology in detail, (ie. Self Healing, Installation sequences).

When I click on the links above I'm taken to what appears to be a landing page and after searching the page I find nothing about Wise Package Studio videos. I've found the first elsewhere for installing the product but can't find the others. BTW, I found the installation video annoying without narration or on screen cues. Wiggling the mouse around something does not automatically imply what you're doing. I've made Camtasia presentations and it isn't that hard to add narration.


Hmmm, it appears to be working now. Site maintenance?

When I click any one of the sections I get an error saying the page is not found:

Page Not Found

The requested page could not be found.

Has it been moved somewhere else? and any other resources available to learn more about WPS?

Thank you
