Do you deliver raw MSI packages?
Hi setup developers,
we as a software developing company deliver our Installshield MSI Setups as setup.exe. Some customers ask for MSI-Packages to deploy via Active Directory or tools like that.
The thing is that our installation projects are not really designed to be used as MSI+MSP because a lot of custom actions are running after apply install and prerequisites are included etc.
How do you deal with such requests. Isn't this a job for repackagers working in these big companies dealing with huge roll-outs. Or are you so kind to deliver also the msi files that are already prepared for such deployment scenarios (or not really)?
Maybe you can give me feeling :)
Delivering installation friendly software is not a kindness, but rather should be your goal. Customers have been getting the raw end of the deal from poorly designed installations for so long that it seems to be the prevalent attitude among vendors. Take a hint from the major industry players who have in the recent past attempted a more customer-centric and configurable approach to their installations.
