Event Details

DELIVERY APPROACH: 5 day remotely delivered instructor-led live class

The InstallShield, MSI Projects course provides you with a solid understanding of installation terminology, the tasks an installation program needs to perform, and the InstallShield development environment.

In this course, you will learn how to customize your installation with custom actions in order to make changes to your end users’ systems. You will also see how to correctly identify, install, and configure special types of files (e.g., COM servers, Windows services, and .NET assemblies). Finally, you will understand how to perform simple to sophisticated changes to your installation’s user interface.

This course teaches you how to create Basic MSI projects, which use the Windows Installer service (MSI) for the installation’s behavior and appearance. This course does not cover InstallScript MSI projects.


In this class you will learn how to:

  • Create and organize an installation project
  • Install files and create shortcuts
  • Install and configure special types of files and data, such as registry and INI data, COM servers, Windows services, and .NET assemblies
  • Work with MSI sequences and custom actions
  • Customize your installer’s user interface
  • Package your installer for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and later
  • Use the Automation interface to modify your project outside the graphical environment


Previous InstallShield experience is not required; however, you should be comfortable with the following:

  • Using Windows Explorer and the command prompt to create and manage files, and run executables
  • Basic Windows terminology (e.g. DLL, Control Panel, etc.)

Later sections of the course assume familiarity with programming or scripting languages such as VBScript, C or C++, and C#.
