Use the Advanced Options section to provide three last options for the MSI file:
□ Background Image: The file path to a custom image to be displayed in the MSI installation wizard pages, instead of the default image. The standard size for this image should be 500x400 pixels.
□ Product Code: A GUID that uniquely defines the installation package. A default GUID is generated for a new database solution, but you can add a custom value by typing it into this field of the wizard.
□ Upgrade Code: A GUID that uniquely defines the upgrade package for this installation package. Again, a default GUID is generated for a new database solution, but you can add a custom value in this field.
For more information about any of these options, MSI files in general, or the Windows Installer 2.0 product, be sure to visit the start page for this product at:
