I have built several packaged setup files and would like to put in the serial numbers for my own usage so when I install them the program installs them when I install them and never asks for the serial number. How do I unpackage them, edit them and then repackage them, so I can do this?:rolleyes: ;) :confused:

As far as repackaging legacy (non-MSI installers) goes, you might look at AdminStudio: http://www.installshield.com/products/adminstudio/ and http://www.installshield.com/products/adminstudio/features/repackage.asp.

If the existing installation uses MSI, you might look into using InstallShield X to create a transform that contains the serial number.
