Can anyone recommend a good piece of software for creating MSTs?
If the author doesn't provide a tool to generate them for their package, you're stuck with orca.
I use WinInstall LE 2003 for all my MSI'ing needs. Its a free version from a long time ago as you can see. It stil runs well and is VERY easy to use
Stored on the server you browse to the msi creators directory, run a discovery wizard to scan the Hdd for settings, then install the software after the first scan, run the software, input codes whatever etc, run the after scan and it picks up all the changes from registry, files etc and makes the MSI for you.
Easy software, hard to get a hold of, i have it backed up everywhere so i dont lose it lol, if you need it emailing just drop me a PM with your address.
I currently use WinInstall LE for most stuff but I want an easy way to make MSTs. I can use Orca but its not the easiest thing to use, especially if you have a fair few changes to make.
I have looked at Advanced Installer that can make MSTs but only if you pay for the full version, and I don't think its worth paying for just that one feature.
Currently looking at InstEd It! which appaently can compare two MSIs and create a transform.
Ooooooooo i read the title and say MSI's and just quickly over read your post lol, ah well ignore me
Just have to remember it's a database so everything works in table form... it's kinda weird to get used to (it's not very procedural) but it's just practice.
