How to Modify the Operating Systems Associated With an Existing Windows Installer File

Use the following procedure to modify the operating system versions associated with an existing Windows Installer ( MSI ) file that was created by using the App-V Sequencer.

To modify the operating systems of an existing Windows Installer file

  1. Install the App-V Sequencer on a computer in your environment that has only the operating system installed. Alternatively, you can install the Sequencer on a computer running a virtual environment—for example, Microsoft Virtual PC. This method is useful because it is easier to maintain a clean sequencing environment that you can reuse with minimal additional configuration. For more information about installing the App-V Sequencer, see How to Install the Sequencer.

  2. Copy the entire virtual application package that contains the Windows Installer file you want to modify to the computer running the Sequencer.

  3. To modify the Windows Installer file, open the Sequencer console, select Package / Open , and then browse to the location where the virtual application package associated with the Windows Installer file is saved.

  4. To add or remove operating systems, select the Deployment tab in the Sequencer console. To specify additional operating systems that will be associated with the Windows Installer file, select the desired operating system, and then click the arrow that points to the Selected operating system list control.

    To remove an operating system association, select the operating system you want to remove, and then click the arrow that points to the Available operating system list control.

  5. To create a new Windows Installer that will be associated with the virtual application package, select Generate Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) Package . Alternatively, you can select Tools / Create MSI .

    noteNote
    If you select Tools / Create MSI to create a new Windows Installer file, you can skip Step 6 of this procedure.

  6. To save the virtual application package, select Package / Save .
