AdminStudio 2021 | 21.0 | Repackager

From the Advanced Package Settings view, you can configure several additional settings that may apply to your repackaged setup.

Select the appropriate options:

Package Conversion Options

The following package conversion options are available:

Package Conversion Options



Use Editor path variables instead of physical source paths

When storing files in the InstallShield Editor project (.ism), the Wizard uses path variable locations whenever possible.

Display only the Welcome dialog box during installation

Only the Welcome dialog box is displayed when the Windows Installer package is run on a target machine. If this option is unchecked, the default UI sequence is displayed when the setup is installed.

Replace files with merge modules wherever possible

Following best practice rules, Repackager replaces components with comparable merge modules whenever possible.

Use the language captured by the Repackager as the language of the setup

When selected, the target package's language will be the language detected by Repackager (as displayed in the Captured Installation view).

Include files from Setup Intent scan

Any files identified when running the Setup Intent Wizard will be included in the package (unless you have manually excluded them from the project).

Component Settings Options

The following component settings options are available:

Component Settings Options



Mark components destined for the System folder as permanent

Executable files installed to the system folder (System32Folder) are marked as Permanent files and will not be uninstalled when the package is uninstalled. This eliminates ICE09 validation errors.

Mark components destined for the CommonFiles folder as shared

Executable files installed to the CommonFilesFolder (or a subfolder of CommonFilesFolder) are marked as shared files. This ensures that these components can coexist with DLLs installed by previous setups.

Map registry data to the appropriate COM tables

Setting this option reduces the number of ICE33 warnings that can occur during package validation, resulting from data not being mapped to the appropriate MSI tables.

Map registry data to the appropriate ODBC tables

If selected, ODBC-related registry data is mapped to ODBC tables instead of the Registry table. This data will only function correctly if Windows Installer supports the ODBC resource being mapped; it is highly recommended that you do not enable this option if you are unsure whether the ODBC resources are supported correctly by Windows Installer.

Map NT Service events to the ServiceControl table

If selected, NT Service–related registry data is mapped to ServiceControl table instead of the Registry table.
