Tartar ukid,

Extract the vviewer.exe into a new folder, and you should find the .msi in there. Therefore, it is not necessary to repackage it.

I would repackage Winzip if I were you, it is a simple application to repackage with WPS, for instance.

Make sure you use a clean computer when you do the repackaging. By that I mean you need to have a minimum of applications installed. Install only the Wise package studio. First, use the SetupCapture Configuration tool. Make sure to follow the description on each step word by word. Then, do a snapshot, install winzip and do any configuration changes you need on it. Reboot after the install (you should always reboot, Wise will restart automatically) snapshot again and there you go. This worked beautifully for me first time.

Good luck [&:]
