Packaging Leica Cyclone 7.1
I have been asked to package a product called Leica Cyclone 7.1. Turns out its a right pain. After running the vendor install executable, i found that it installed .net 3.0 SP1, C++ 2005 redist, a product relate runtime called Leica Runtime and finally the product it self.
During the install, i found the temp folder where the above are extracted and have taken a copy to work with. Everything was pretty easy to package up to the actual product, which on the surface looks like a legacy installation (a bunch of DLL's, setup.exe, CAB files etc) needing to be captured into an MSI.
This is where the problems start. When i fire up setup.exe, i select the installation options i want but during the actual install i get prompt for the location of DATA2.cab. I cannot find this CAB file anywhere. Even if i pause the OEM vendor installation, DATA2.cab is no where to be found.
Any ideas on what i'm missing?

Sometimes the cab files and msi files will be extracted to currently logged in user profile's AppData folder instead of %Temp% folder.. Check it once..
Use Windows Search option to catch the DATA2.cab file at the time of installation..
Just enter data2.cab in search box and start installing your application, as soon as it get extracted, windows search will catch it and show you it's exact location..
