The information presented in this book is fundamentally intended as an introduction to the practices of application packaging.

Run commands/Uninstall on logged in user from System Account

As mentioned in a previous blog post, one challenge that we all faced is with running commands from the System Account to a current logged in user. Either you want to uninstall a per-user MSI, or just want to make some changes, this was pretty hard. For this, i created this executable that you can download.

MSI Template with Powershell

Do you need to add over and over again the same properties or summary information in your MSI/MSTs?

I’ve developed a Powershell script in which you can configure a template (properties and summary information) and apply it to MSIs, already done MSTs or you can create an MST with this script.

More information on how to use it, check out this post.


Software Packaging Scripts Collection

I have gathered and compiled 20 of the most common scripts for Software Packaging that I’ve constantly used during the years.

Some of them are designed to be used inside the MSI and call the MSI properties, some aren’t.

If you have any other scripts recommendations that you want to see in the bundle, let me know and I’ll update the collection.
