Application Packaging

By BatmanBSD ·
I want to know more about application packaging? Wise installer, installshield and other *.msi packaging applications. Does anyone know of any books, training, self-study or CBT materials. I am not an experienced programmer.

Hi.

Well, these packages are just programs that will package your executables, plus all relevant dependencies (files, databases, ocx, dlls, etc) into a setup program. These normally come in exes, cabs or msi as you already know.

Some packages will include a direct import feature to help in the packaging process, for example, InstallShield has a feature that imports, say, Visual Basic projects.

One way to try out is to download the free evaluation copies of these great products. The ones I've done before have great interface, so you may be up and running in no time!

Some sites you can try:
www.installshield.com (look at the right hand side)
http://www.wise.com/products.asp

Good luck and hope this helps
