MmWiGuid.VBS

This is a tool that is provided with MAKEMSI, it creates and displays Windows Installer formatted GUIDs in a manner which makes it very easy to cut and paste elsewhere.

A shortcut to this program was installed with MAKEMSI and as GUIDs can be defined in the "version file", this would probably be its major use.

Use from command line

Pretty basic command line support but basically to generate GUID to console the program must have at least 1 parameter (any values) and must be invoked via CSCRIPT, as demonstrated here:

C:\Tmp>cscript.exe //NoLOGO "%MAKEMSI_DIR%\MmWiGuid.vbs" ""
GUID="{E212360F-32A8-47A9-9874-407D9E474AC2}"

C:\Tmp>
