I created a package, Orgplus 6.0 with Wise Package Studio 6.01 version. When I tried to compile the WSI to change it to MSI, it went through and nothing happened -the file still remained WSI. I did it over and over again, same thing. There were two errors in the discription field at that bottom of the Installation Expert screen about 2 files (MSXML2r and MSXML2) that could not be compressed. I copied the files and placed them in the location that they were supposed be, still nothing happened.
Any thought? Please help.

Are you sure that the 2 files exists where Wise is looking for them? To be sure, in Wise, right-click them and check their source. Also, when you compile a wsi, you will still have the wsi, you will just get an MSI as well.

The two files were not existing at first but I copied them to those locations but still, no way. Here is the exact error below:

File with key x86_Microsoft.MSXML2R_6bd6b9abf345378f_4.1.0.0_xww_29c3ad6a
located at s:\projects\orgplus6\Windows\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.MSXML2R_6bd6b9abf345378f_4.1.0.0_x-ww_29c3ad6a
could not be compressed. This may be a temporary file location.
Make sure file x86_Microsoft.MSXML2R_6bd6b9abf345378f_4.1.0.0_xww_29c3ad6a
has a source path.

sounds like merge module source. delete and re-add them if you can.

WinSxS is the Windows Side-by-Side directory, not a merge module source.
I have never used it myself, but it is one of those directories that can be a little tricky.
I don't think you can copy files to the WinSxS directory just like that, you somehow have to "install" them there (I think you use .NET somehow here, not quite sure). Have you tried NOT putting them into you installation, compiling it, then install the MSI to a new machine and see if the files appear there? Also, I think your installation must be set to mixed or .NET, not Win32.
