Editing MSI & MST Files

Thought I would make a quick first post, I will start doing a few more regularly hopefully soon. Not that anyone is probably reading this yet :)

Today whilst looking up Orca, Microsofts free MSI Editor that comes as a part of the Windows Installer SDK. (See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa370557(VS.85).aspx)

I noticed in the comments down the bottom that they mention a freeware MSI Editor called InstEd It!

Downloaded this, and so far it appears to be a great tool for editing windows installer files. Grab it here

If however you need to use Orca, I noticed Brent Norris has extracted it from the SDK so you can download just the orca.msi file without having to get the 300mb SDK :)
