Hi There,

I dont thnk you can add file via Orca, its just a editor. You can create transform via Wise tool to copy file to this location.

Of course you can use Orca! You need to edit the Component, FeatureComponent, File and Media tables. Orca (or better, InstEdit) is a hard-core tools: you need to know your stuff to use it. Given the question - no offence - you would be much better off using a decent MSI authoring tool.

Also, it's bad practice to edit vendor-supplied MSIs. You should apply a transform instead.

There's a list of tools on installsite.org, none of which I've used so couldn't comment on whether they're decent or not.

Hi Sven,
like Rowan suggested: It's already there! One just has to dig it out....
