"I was unable to do an administrative install of the original package (msiexec /a vviewer.msi) and patch the administrative install with sp1. The admin install doesn't work."
It's possible to perform an administrative install to the original package "vviewer.msi"
Extract table from a original project msi
And insert table in vviewer.msi
Try to use orca to insert table and installshield to extract
In the table Media change 96 with 5037 for example
It's works ;)
After this, try with the new MSI to apply the patch:
1 Msiexec /a "vviewer.msi" TARGETDIR="[Directory Destination]"
2 Copy "office2007-kb973709.msp" and "VViewersp2-fr-fr.msp" to the Directory Destination
3 To Apply Patch :
Msiexec /a "vviewer.msi" /p "VViewersp2-fr-fr.msp"
Msiexec /a "vviewer.msi" /p "office2007-kb973709.msp"
You can rename "vviewer.msi" and product name for example
