Can't save .msi edits with WPS?

I am hoping someone will point out the (I'm sure obvious) thing I'm overlooking here!


I have an vendor .msi and just need to make a couple shortcut modifications. I am using Wise Package Studio... so I make my changes and click to save the .msi (and it goes through the motions) but when I go to close it, I'm prompted whether or not I want to save my changes (meaning it never really saved them but was just messing with me).

I am able to edit and (really) save it using Orca (but who wants to do that?) so I can get around it, but was just wondering what might cause this? I can certainly edit/make other .msi files in WPS (it's just a local client install) just apparently not this one?

Thanks in advance,

If you have a vendor msi I would stick with ORCA and just make the changes through a transform.
Rating comments in this legacy AppDeploy message board thread won't reorder them,
so that the conversation will remain readable.
