How can I repackage MSI I opened using 7zip so I can edit the XML. I made the change to XML and now I would like to repackage it back to MSI for deployment.

Thanks,
Yrich

Hi,

Don't edit the MSI itself. Open it and saves all changes as an MST. Use Orca or Instedit (both free) to make the changes is easiest for small edits, but major changes may well need Adminstudio.

Mike
PS: Best practise is to never ever edit MSIs directly, particularly if you lack experience.
