Hello
Can InstallAware be used to create Merge Modules?

Thanks

Hi I've found the answer to this in an older post, you cannot create merge modules with InstallAware.

If you don't want to spend money on IS/WPS to create a MSM, you can use ORCA and then follow the guidelines from this article:

We also have WiXAware (www.wixaware.com) which does let you build merge modules, but the recommended way of code re-use in InstallAware is by using the Include Script command.
