[wix-users] Cab file in bundle

Yes, that's one of the things you can use payload for.

I have a similar situation where an installer in my bundle has an external .cab file (among other things).

You put it inside your MsiPackage or ExePackage element, like this:

<ExePackage Id="foosetup" vital="yes" Compressed="yes" SourceFile="path\to\foo_setup.exe">
    <Payload Id="fooconfig" Compressed="yes" SourceFile="path\to\foo_config.ini" />
</ExePackage >

Subject: [wix-users] Cab file in bundle

Hello all,

Inside my bundle i have to call an msi which has a cab file.

I did not create the msi nor the cab file.

When i call the msi in my bundle, do i have to mention the cab file aswell?

Is that what payloads are for?

Or is there a way in which i can merge both files to 1 msi?

Kind regards,

Stijn de Winter
