I'm new to packaging - and finding that most apps have hundreds of these errors. I am able to fix most of them but it takes days without an automated tool - does anyone know of a tool that can fix ICE validation errors automatically? Is it necessary to fix these at all? Are there any decent web resources about these that explain what is and isn't necessary to fix? Any help appreciated.

I'm using Wise Package Studio 5.1.

ICE Error resoluion is pretty much where experience pays off. There are a few tools out there that help, but they can only fix the easy ones. I haven't found anything resembling the proverbial "Magic Wand".

The best solution I can recommend is becoming very familiar with the following resources. You still need to bridge the gap yourself, but this is most of the information necessary to resolve ICE errors.
