Create MSI from a system difference
Hi, I am looking to create an MSI by using WinINSTALL LE, and having it make a 'system difference' msi. However, does anyone know if this MSI would include a usb device installed during the system change?
I.E. if I create an msi by comparing a before and after state of a machine, will this also include the usb driver installation? I was thinking of...
Step A - using MSI creation software, take a 'before' snapshot'
Step B - fully install software and usb driver and plug it in and get it working
Step C - Using MSI software, now take the 'after' snapshot and voila!
Any thoughts? Thanks!

Yes, in theory it would work but drivers are funny old things and sometimes work, sometimes don't. It depends if they are WHQL or not as to whether it'll work nicely.
Worth a go though.

DifXApp is the MS recommended way to include drivers in an MSI package.
