Integrate MSP into MSI
Posted 02 November 2005 - 10:12 AM
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)

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]
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.

I want ONLY the MSI file patched, and not an administrative intall.
Is that possible?

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)

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..
