View Full Version : Create new MSI from existing MSI

04-23-2013, 10:21 AM
I have to create an MSI package starting from an existing MSI package. The new package should be created without a component which is installed by default in the original MSI package. What is the fastest way to do this ?

Thanks in advance for your help

You shouldn't need (or want) to create a new MSI. Just create a transform (.MST) that disables said component by placing a condition on it that always evaluates to false. Then run the MSI passing the TRANSFORMS= property to apply the transform during the installation.
