Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard

Download Install

Installing legacy software with group policies in the Active Directory can cause some challenges. The first is machine assigned software. Machine assigned software can only be installed using a Windows Installer msi file. The second is allowing users to install software by publishing it to the user. Publishing software to the user can be done using .zap files, but the software will run in the user’s security context and this is a problem when local administrator permissions are required. Publishing the software using a Windows Installer msi file can remedy this problem because, by default, published msi software is installed with elevated privileges. With WIWW you can create msi files that will execute any command you specify and gives system administrators additional flexibility to remedy these challenges.

The Windows Installer Wrapper Wizard (WIWW) is an old tool written long ago and no longer updated. It is generously provided here free courtesy of author Vincent an Egmond. Please shoot him a quick thank you if you find it helpful!
