How do I open an MSP file?

03/19/2012 12584 views
Need to open a msp file in Wise and modify it to suppress a dialog box asking for a reboot.
Answer Summary:
MSIEXEC can use the /norestart function in conjunction with the /qn for a completely passive installation. Your final command line will look like this. msiexec /p"C:\Package.msp" /qn /norestart

I don't believe it is possible to open msp files in Wise.

You can open an MSP file on top of MSI through ORCA. Open the MSI through ORCA and then drag drop the MSP over it. You will not be able to change anything, just view what the differences are.

  • Does anyone know the steps to use the property MSIRESTARTCONTROL ? Apparently you can set it to disable along with a custom action to suppress the dialog. Any help is appreciated. Cheers

Adding to that, have you tried putting REBOOT=ReallySuppress as a command line parameter when running msiexec /p??

  • Yes I did have REBOOT=ReallySuppress in the command line but it still brought up the dialog. The only way it gets suppressed is with /qn but I need to have a passive install as well.
