I have a problem with WIHU and windows installer files. as soon as the wihu installer starts the .msi-file i get an error-massage. sadly it's in german.

 
Dieses Installationspaket konnte nicht geöffnet werden. Stellen Sie sicher, dass das Paket existiert und das Sie darauf zugreifen können. Oder lassen Sie den Hersteller der Datei überprüfen, ob es sich um ein günstiges Windows-Installer Installationspaket handelt. 


basically it means that the installation pakage could not be opened and i should make sure that it is a valid windows-installer installation pakage.

could anybody give me a hint how to solve my problem?

1- Are you sure the file is not corrupter, i.e. you can run it without error by double-clicking on it ?
2- Does %wihu% path contain space ? It's always better to quote the paths anyway.
3- Have you tried specifying "msiexec /i %path.msi%" ?

1. file works like a charm :)
2. i tried to quote it. didn't work
3. i'll give it a try. didn't knew this way so far.

thx a lot!

€dit: sadly your tip didn't work out.

is there a way to create a .exe installer out of a .msi?

€dit2: i changed the code to the following scheme and it works perfectly.

description.4=WinLAME
command.4=msiexec /i %srcdrive%\$OEM$\install\setups\winLAME.msi
selected.4=1
hidden.4=0
collapsed.4=0
locked.4=0
disabled.4=0
group.4=0
flags.4=
workdir.4=
helptext.4=
ext_creator_switchtype.4=0
ext_creator_originalcommand.4=msiexec /i %srcdrive%\$OEM$\install\setups\winLAME.msi

the only problem is that you have to make a cd-image or burn it on a cd.
