Well, we would, if you were to state the EXACT nature of the problem. To say that it "breaks Windows Installer" doesn't tell us anything.

- What error message do you get and when?
- What does a verbose log of the install show you? Does it install a new version of, for example, MSI.DLL?

Out of curiosity, I downloaded the application. After having selected 'English' as the language, the dialog box helpfully tells me "Extracting Vodafone Mobile Coonect.MSI"

Clearly, the application is delivered in MSI form (albeit inside a wrapper EXE) and thus you should not be re-packaging it. As usual, the MSI will be in the %TEMP% folder - in this case, in a sub-folder called {4BE63289-EA19-4EBA-8B08-5B1B1A032D04} - so use that and make any necessary changes using a transform file.
