Master Packager is a tool to create and edit Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) files and repackage other installation to MSI format.
Our vision is to make application packaging easy, fast and affordable that is accessible to everyone from application packager freelancer, small company and enterprises.
Our team, including myself, has been working as application packagers since 2012 with more than 5000 created application packages. During this time, we have worked with many packaging tools; however, there were several issues with them. Either they were very expensive, slow to handle large MSI files, or did not have the out-of-box functionality we were looking for to automate tasks. To start creating more packages in a shorter timeframe while still improving packaging quality we got this idea. We developed a team that could create our own packaging tool that we would use ourselves and eventually make available to others.
We created Master Packager so packagers could solve issues they have all over the world. We are testing Master Packager with the most complicated applications we have ever seen to ensure that the repackaged applications work the same as the original.

We started with MSI support as MSI is still the only installation format that can do it ALL. However, we are aware that Microsoft is working hard to implement new installation formats, like MSIX. Although MSIX technology is far from being ready to satisfy the needs of all developers, packagers, and enterprises we will be working to support MSIX as well.
