The SQL Anywhere Deployment wizard is the preferred tool for creating deployments of SQL Anywhere for Windows. The Deployment wizard can create installer files that include some or all of the following components:
Client interfaces such as ODBC
SQL Anywhere server, including remote data access, database tools, and encryption
MobiLink server, client, Monitor, and encryption
Administration tools such as Interactive SQL and Sybase Central
You can use the Deployment wizard to create a Microsoft Windows Installer Package file or a Microsoft Windows Installer Merge Module file:
Microsoft Windows Installer Package file A storage file containing the instructions and data required to install an application. An Installer Package file has the extension .msi.
Microsoft Windows Installer Merge Module file A simplified type of Microsoft Installer Package file that includes all files, resources, registry entries, and setup logic to install a shared component. A merge module has the extension .msm.A merge module cannot be installed alone because it lacks some vital database tables that are present in an installer package file. Merge modules also contain additional tables that are unique to themselves. To install the information delivered by a merge module with an application, the module must first be merged into the application's Installer Package (.msi) file. A merge module consists of the following parts:
A merge module database containing the installation properties and setup logic being delivered by the merge module.
A merge module Summary Information Stream describing the module.
A MergeModule.CAB cabinet file stored as a stream inside the merge module. This cabinet contains all the files required by the components delivered by the merge module. Every file delivered by the merge module must be stored inside of a cabinet file that is embedded as a stream in the merge module's structured storage. In a standard merge module, the name of this cabinet is always: MergeModule.CAB.
