msidiff(1) compare Windows Installer packages


msidiff [<option> [<option> ...]] [<diff-options>] <source MSI> <target MSI>


msidiff compares Windows Installer packages (.MSI files).


-t, --tables
Compare MSI tables as text. This is the default.
-l, --list
Compare the file lists in the packages.
-L, --long-list
Compare the detailed file lists in the packages.
-h, --help
Print a help message and exit.
-v, --version
Print version information and exit.

More than one of -t, -l or -L may be specified.

<diff-options> are passed to diff(1). The first repeated argument of the above or the first argument starting with a `-' but not a valid msidiff option starts <diff-options>, the first argument not starting with `-' ends them. By default, <diff-options> is -Nup for contents, -U0 for others, and -r which is always passed.
