  • Overview of Repackaging Best Practices - MSI Package Builder
    to perform repackaging you should revert the VM to this snapshot in order to use a clean repackaging environment Repackage and deploy on the same platform When you deploy the same installation on different platforms x86 and x64 it can create different resources so you should repackage the installation on the same platform and preferably under the same OS that will be used for deployment of the MSI to be generated If you need to deploy an installation on both the x86 and x64 platforms you should create two separate MSI packages for these platforms Disable anti viruses firewalls and Windows updates The system software working in the background may generate changes that will appear in the created MSI To avoid that it is recommended to disable Windows updates Anti viruses firewalls and other security software may also produce unwanted changes and might cause an unstable or incorrect monitoring operation so they should be disabled as well Prevent an auto start of the repackaged application after its installation When you perform repackaging in the Automated Monitoring mode EMCO MSI Package Builder automatically starts monitoring before running the repackaged installation and stops monitoring when the installation is finished Some installations prompt you to run the installed application as the final step of the deployment which prevents EMCO MSI Package Builder from detecting the end of the installation and stopping the monitoring process at the right place automatically You have to skip running the installed application in the course of the installation process If the application starts automatically after the installation just close it to notify EMCO MSI Package Builder of the end of the installation process Skip reboots If the monitored installation requires a reboot you should stop monitoring and generate an MSI before rebooting Using a clean environment for repackaging

  • MSI Packages Testing and Troubleshooting - MSI Package Builder
    generated a file change that is captured and included into the MSI When you deploy the MSI it tries to modify the file but the file is in use by the running antivirus therefore the MSI deployment cannot be finished To resolve this problem you need to repeat the repackaging using a clean environment as suggested in the repackaging best practices A file is locked during MSI uninstall This problem is similar to the one described above An MSI includes a change initiated by an unrelated application which may be an antivirus for example When you deployed the MSI the file change is accepted but when you try to uninstall the MSI the file is locked by the antivirus To resolve this problem and uninstall the MSI you need to close the program that locks the file and then uninstall the MSI In any case the generated MSI is incorrect and you need to create a new MSI using a clean environment for repackaging An MSI was installed successfully but the installation does not appear in Windows Programs and Features By default EMCO MSI Package Builder creates MSI packages that are deployed per user so if you didn t use any special options during the MSI deployment the installation is visible for the current user only and if you switch to another user you won t be able find it in the Windows Start menu or in Programs and Features To resolve this problem you may provide special deployment options for the msiexec utility to be deployed to all user accounts during the MSI deployment Alternatively you may change the MSI project settings to use the All Users option instead of the Current User option and generate a new MSI package An MSI upgrade doesn t remove the old version

  • Deployment - Remote Installer
    better understanding of the concept of the program and be able to use it without any problems Remote Installer supports installing uninstalling and repairing of the products deployed using the following installer types Executable Installer Windows Installer Package and Microsoft Software Patch Using an executable installer you can install programs updates and patches As Remote Installer allows you to operate multiple Machines at the same time there is a possibility that one part of the operated Machines will be running the x86 operating system and the other part will be running the x64 system The concept of a multi platform deployment package allows you to define a single deployment package for both target platforms and provide different deployment options if required For example you can use different installation files apply different MSI transforms and run different pre and post actions for Machines running the x86 or x64 systems Another important thing you should always keep in mind is that with Remote Installer you perform a silent deployment i e a deployment performed without any interaction with the user Thus the installer should be properly configured for unattended deployment In this chapter we will show you how to configure installers for

  • Operations' Execution Results - Remote Installer
    Machines grouping them by runs You can review those results within the Execution Results view For each run you can see the operation name the operation type the execution type and brief execution statistics Under each run you can find detailed results info grouped by Machines and Groups those Machines belong to The application log is designed to store information on supplementary operations results and other events taking place while the program is running For example the results of enumerating a network for Machines performed either for building the network structure or while executing machine queries is stored within the application log The application log also contains events that are not directly connected to remote operations and merely provide you with details on the program lifecycle Such events are displayed in the Application Log view Both the execution results and the application log are designed so as to help you to analyze the operation execution results and to troubleshoot problems taking place while the program is in use The execution results and the application log databases may grow continually thus slowing down the program loading and response time To prevent this you can either delete execution results and clear the application log manually or allow the program to perform the clean up automatically on a regular basis The options for deleting execution results and events automatically are available on the Execution Results and Application Log preference pages On the Application Log page it is also possible to change the Application Log view presentation options In this chapter we will explain how to analyze execution results and the application log to ensure that operations have been completed successfully or to troubleshoot possible problems We will also describe the option of exporting execution results and logged events into a simple format What
