Stored procedures
You have the ability to create a setup program in MSI standard. These setup procedures are smaller and allow the use of the installer inside the company.
Remark: A setup program in MSI standard can be used for a stand-alone setup only. Indeed, this format does not manage the network setups and the automatic modification of data files.

  4. Select "Individual setup", then "Setup via MSI package" in the next step.
  5. In the rest of wizard:
    • specify the setup directory. The "Advanced" button is used to define the modifications that must be made by the setup to the system configuration (registry, INI file, ...).
    • select the files to install.
    • specify the options for installing the WINDEV framework.
    • specify whether a license must be displayed or not.
    • select the setup context: for the current user or for all the computer users. This option is used to properly create the shortcuts for starting the application.
    • specify whether the MSI setup package must be signed. If the pack must be signed, select the certificate to use.

Caution: No executable can be run at the end of the "MSI package" setup program.
