Integrate MSP into MSI

6 posts in this topic

Is there some way to integrate a msp patch into a msi package?

I think I have done it before, but cannot remember how to do it, other then that I used msiexec to do it.

(I want to integrate patch 11 for Mcafee Virusscan 8.0i into the installer)

I know nothing of Mcafee.

To slipstream am MSP into an MSI .... use this syntax:

msiexec /p [path\name of update MSP file]/a [path\name of MSI file] SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* [path\name of log file]

example:

msiexec /p OUTLFLTR.msp /a d:\office\pro11.msi SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /l* install.log

The following describes the command-line options.

/p Enables Windows Installer to apply an update to an existing installation.

/a Enables Windows Installer to perform an administrative installation of a product on a network share.

SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE Directs Windows Installer to create all file names and folders with

MS-DOS-compatible file names. Required when you run Windows Installer from the command line.

/qb Sets the user interface to the basic level (simple progress and error handling).

/L* Turns on logging and sets a path for the log file. The * flag causes the switch to log all information.

The problem with that is, that it creates alot of files, and folders.

I want ONLY the MSI file patched, and not an administrative intall.

Is that possible?

I'm quite sure that to integrate an MSP you must 1st create an administrative install point

from the original msi. syntax: msiexec /a original.msi.

Then integrate the MSP, and repackage the product if required.

Quite often, an administrative install ultimately uses less space than the original installer

when repackaged with high compression.

(although i may be wrong)

Hello,

Is there any configuration in order to execute always the SFX with the highest priviledges? I can edit the manifest file with the resource hacker but I would like to see if there is any other way..

Cheers,
