I have a requirement to change the standard icon and the text you get in a Windows Explorer tooltip and Properties sheet for a Setup.exe wrapper. I can't see a way of changing anything except the Copyright (via Use my own version info) when in the InstallShield 2009 Premier IDE. Am i right in thinking that?
If so, looks like i need to build my own launcher Setup.exe. I have located some sample code in my Platform sdk folders that makes a setup.exe in
C:\program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Microsoft SDK\Samples\sysmgmt\msi\setup.exe
1. does that produce the same Setup.exe wrapper logic that InstallShield would produce if i tell it to wrap my MSI?
2. Does the sdk one install msiexec on the target system if it's not there?
3. Once i have built this Setup.exe, how do i 'embed' my MSI package in it ready for deployment to users? I just want the one file to distribute.
4. Are there any better examples of launcher sourcecode than that i found above?
