Compiling Acrobat 6 as single msi

I have edited the Acrobat 6 Pro install package using an MST, and would now like to combine the MST, MSI, CAB and other files as a single MSI for easier disrtibution.

However, in DevStudio, when opening the install package in either in Direct MST Mode, the release wizard menu is disabled. The same problem occurs when I open the standard acrobat msi file in Direct Edit Mode.

How do I proceed? Is there another way to compile the install as a single MSI?

Yes, I hope you can Merge transform(MST) with MSI and make a single MSI. Please follow the steps below:

1. Open MSI using installshield
2. From Tools Menu, select Create/Apply Transform... you get a wizard.
3. Choose "Apply a transform" option. Click Next
4. Specify files, select the MSI and respective MST.
5. Supress Error Conditions, select 2nd option. And don't check any error conditions. Click Next.
6. Specify Output File Name. Click Next.
7. Click Apply button.

New MSI is ready. Try and let me know.

That combines the MSI and MST files, but I'm trying to find a way to combine all the installation files, including the data1.cab file, the ini files, etc.
