GUID Generation

This option is available on the MAKEMSI "start" menu. It allows you to easily create one or many GUIDs in Windows Installer format (uses "MmWiGuid.VBS").

The GUID is displayed as follows (new GUID created every time "OK" pressed):

I typically use this option once per new package to generate a fixed GUID for the "UpgradeCode", all others I allow to self generate or use commands such as "Guid".
