MSI (Windows Installer) Automation
« on: July 18, 2018, 05:31:10 am »
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:

I know the oft-mentioned WinINSTALL LE is still available at
Have not actually tried it myself though.
