View Full Version : msitool.exe help/docs?

07-31-2002, 08:11 AM

I'm very new to the world of installers and I'm trying to modify an existing project which gets autobuilt using ant, ini files and command line installer tools. I have recently started trying to create 2 additional merge modules to the project. Prior to my efforts, there was already one MM. Unfortunately, there must be an error in either my ini file or in the ant script which calls msitool.exe and for some reason, the merge module is not build upon execution of msitool.exe. Can anyone point me to any sort of documentation/help on using msitool.exe?

Thanks very much in advance,

I think it is MsiTool.mak instead of MsiTool.exe. If I am correct then you can find more details regarding this on MSDN site using link MsiTool.mak (http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/msi/relver_2gff.asp)

If this is not enough then search MSDN site for this.

Its definitely msitool.exe and i can't find any references to it on msdn. Anyone else have any experience with this executable?
