Build an Application Installer

To install your streaming application on Amazon AppStream, you will need a streaming application installer that does the following:

  • Runs silently without any user interaction.

  • Exists as a single executable file (*.exe). Do not use Microsoft Windows Installer files (*.msi), batch files (*.bat), or self-extracting zip (*.zip) files.

  • Installs the streaming application and any required dependency files.

  • Sets the necessary file and folder permissions so that a Windows standard user account can run the streaming application. for more information on Windows accounts, see "What is a standard user account?" at
