The PowerBuilder Runtime Packager is a tool that packages the PowerBuilder files an application needs at runtime into a Microsoft Windows Installer package (MSI) file. Windows Installer is an installation and configuration service that is installed with newer Microsoft Windows operating systems. It is provided as a service pack to Windows NT.
You can run the PowerBuilder Runtime Packager from the Windows Start menu or by launching the pbpack90 executable file in your Shared\PowerBuilder directory.
The Runtime Packager creates an MSI file that includes the files required by the components you select and all the core PowerBuilder runtime DLLs. The MSI file is a compressed file that can be executed directly on any Windows platform. It registers any self-registering DLLs, adds the installation destination path to the Windows Registry, sets the system PATH environment variable, and adds information to the Registry for the Install/Uninstall page in the Windows Control Panel. It can also be used in some third-party installation software packages.
