Patching An MSI
I've been asked to try and solve a problem with regards deploying an MSP and MSI together. What I need to do is 'import' an MSP into an MSI so that the MSI is then deployable without the need to deploy the MSP over the top afterwards.
Everything I have read seems to suggest that I can slipstream the MSP into an administrative install of the MSI, this appears to work in that I can see the uncompressed source files have been patched correctly but when I then deploy the MSI it carries on using the files that are compressed within the MSI. As a side note I can see that the MSI has had something done to it (after the admin install) as the time/date on it has changed although it is still the same size.
So is there any way to somehow 'force' the MSI to use the patched uncompressed files or am I going to have to repackage the MSI using the updated files which somehow seems overly complicated for what I'm trying to achieve...
Thanks in advance.
