TryMeDualPurposePackage-SupportsWinXP.MM

This is one of the MAKEMSI samples which build a new MSI/MSM. This MSI makes use of these "TryMe.MM" files:

  1. TryMe.ver
  2. TryMe.rtf

This demonstrates dual-purpose package (single package authoring).

; DESCRIPTION
; ~~~~~~~~~~~
; Shows one way of creating a dual purpose package (DPP) which is also
; referred to as Single Package Autrhoring.
;
; If we only cared about supporting WIN7+ (Windows Installer 5.0+) then this
; would be easier as then you'd be able to use these properties:
;   * MSIINSTALLPERUSER
;   * ProgramFilesFolder
;   * CommonFilesFolder
;   * ProgramFiles64Folder
;   * CommonFiles64Folder
;
; This msi supports per-machine & per-user installation in Windows 7+ as well
; as WINXP.
