I would like to build separate Setup and MSI files for a SingleImage build, but can't seem to do so.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Hi,

By default the Single Image release media type is compressed.
To create a release with setup.exe and the .msi file set the SingleImage Release property 'Compress Media' to No.

Regards,
Marco

I tried your suggestion but now I have a Program Files folder in the Release folder containing the distribution files.

What I'm trying to accomplish is to get exactly two files, a setup.exe and ???.msi.

I believe that this is not possible.

To my knowledge you can only specify one single file (.msi or setup.exe) or the uncompressed release with all the files.

Why do you want the two files?

Hi Marco,

It's just a timesaver for me.

I like to review my installer packages with ORCA to ensure that I've gotten all the files and haven't added any extraneous ones. ORCA, however, only processes MSI files so I have to make the build more than once.

Regards,

Curt
