Installshield Chained Msi Does Not Install

Posted on by

I have a.msi that I want to install (chain) with another.msi. I've created the new chained.msi package in Releases and selected the.msi through the Browse button (clicking yes to use streaming).

I've tried both leaving Install Condition as 'Not Installed' and changing it to 'True'. I built the.msi, and ran the install, but it never installs the chained package. There is no mention of it anywhere during the installation. I know that it's included, since the resulting.msi file size is appropriate. It's just not installing. Is there anything I'm missing? What else is required to install a chained.msi?

By David Cole, Senior Software Engineer, IBM Introduction Install developers often need to include other products within their own setup. Flexera Software’s InstallShield 2009, coupled with Microsoft’s Windows Installer (MSI) 4.5, offers new options for chaining installs together while avoiding the problems associated with the existing options of merge modules and nested installs. This white paper describes using chained.msi packages in InstallShield 2009 and MSI 4.5 to componentize a setup. You will learn how to include other.msi packages within your own so that the result may be installed with the appearance of being a single product. The white paper also compares chained.msi packages with InstallShield prerequisites, which provide another method for including third-party setups.
