White Paper: Windows Installer (MSI) Sequences and Standard Actions
Built-In Actions that Make Up a Typical Software Installation Program
Instead of using an explicit script, Windows Installer (MSI) uses sequences to specify the order in which operations are performed and the conditions under which they are performed. This white paper, written by Robert Dickau, introduces Windows Installer sequences, and describes some of the built-in actions that make up a typical software installation program. It also highlights how InstallShield makes it easier to work with sequences and standard actions.
