MSI installer

Dec 3, 2012 at 3:51 PM

I was wondering if providing an MSI installer for Path Copy Copy had been considered? This would be useful for example when using Group Policy to deploy Path Copy Copy (Group Policy can only install .msi, not .exe installers).

This would mean using something other than Inno Setup as that can't build MSI. Possibly WiX http://wixtoolset.org/ or Install Sheild LE?

Thanks.

I haven't really considered it, no. I know for a fact that building MSI-based installers with the like of WiX is immensely more complicated than Inno Setup, so that's why I went for the easiest path when I chose Inno. However, the fact is that I now have a "Network admin" doc available so perhaps an MSI installer would be sensible...

In the meantime, there are solutions to wrap EXE installers into MSI files. A little Google search should help.

I'll add a work item for this.
