Does anyone know how you can oull the files in a MSI package into an external cabnet file through Wise Installer Editor. I have a package that I created that ended up being 320MB, and I would like to pull the files out of it to make the package smaller

Hello Millertime!

Open your Wise WSI project file and within the 'Installation Expert' view, select the 'Media' option.
Double-click on your media name and choose the following options:

Compression Option: Compress files into external CAB files

Cab Options: One Cab

I choose one CAB cause it looks 'pretty'. You may want to change this to multiple CAB files to fit onto floppy disk/CDROMs etc.

This is probably the way to go- one thing to add is that if you don't have the WSI, PS will convert it for you.
