Hi folks,

I'm creating a patched install of Adobe Acrobat 7 standard. I've been able to create the administrative install and patch it up to 7.0.8, but now instead of deploying from the extracted files of the admin install, I'm wondering how (or if I even can) wrap all those files back up in a CAB? I've tried a few things with MakeCAB and CABARC, but I'm always getting the Windows Installer error (1334, if I recall) saying the file cannot be found. I've meddled with a few things in the MSI (media table, Word Count property, sequence number) but the correct combination is eluding me. Does anyone have any advice for me? Am I just missing the right combination, or am I way off in general ? :) Thanks!

-I.

Did you look at the Attribute column in the File table for these files?

Um, not really. Is there something specific there that I should be looking for?

If neither the msidbFileAttributesNoncompressed or msidbFileAttributesCompressed attribute bit is set the Word Count property will take place.
Have a look at the File table using Msi.chm from the platform sdk.

Hi Ivan,
this is possible with the 'WiMakCab.vbs' script from the SDK. Use the /c and /u switches.
Afterwards you should also call 'WiFilVer.vbs /u' to update the version and size columns in the MSI-file.
Regards, Nick
