I'm very new to Libreoffice. Trying to understand the code, and making few changes to it. So far, I was able to download, make changes to the code, and build it to see how my changes are applied to the code. I am interested to know how to create an installer from the source code that I have. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks! V

UPDATE- One of the user from IRC Chat suggested me to use with the switch --with-package-format=msi and I did. But when I run the MAKE command, it came up with 2 errors:

1) makecab.exe not found. 2) could not find all needed files in path! at lode/dev/stable/solenv/bin/modules/installer/ line 135.
