Er...shouldn't the vendor be supplying patches? Do you mean MST (transform)?

If you are using WPS, crating a WiseScript executable to perform your task would be a good option compared to .MSP

BTW, does anyone know about .ipf file to use in such scenarios? Is it a free utility, SMS Installer ??

The IPF file is mostly used with SMS Installer or should I say an early WiseScript (as they bought it).

If you want to have a look at the IPF then you could use the parser at http://www.serverwatch.com/tutorials/article.php/1493241/Managing-SMS-Installer-IPF-Files.htm

Depending on how you plan to manager future update from the vendor I would not create a patch.
However; if there is no need for vendor patches for this product then you could just (depending on the authoring tool you're using) update a copy of the MSI with the changes and then generate a patch between the original and update MSI.
