Curious to know if anyone has used winbatch to automate .MSI creation.  If so, would you mind sharing some of the knowledge?


Windows has MSI related COM Automation interfaces.  But I have not used them and am not sure exactly what you need to automate so I can't provide much help or advice.   There is one example in the Tech Database that shows how to get version information from an MSI file.  It can be found here:

The MSFT documentation for the installer interfaces can be found here:
