I am a newbie and I'm trying to create an mst for the 'SCR Pro V8' that comes with a native msi. Using the WPS 5.0 wizard I created an mst and made very few customisations to the orig msi. i.e. I changed a few features that were being installed, etc. Also stopped all the dialogs from being displayed (during the mst creation, the wizard gives you the choice to place a tick in a box for each window that you do not want displayed during install - this does not appear to work. I had to manually edit the mst after creation to stop the dialogs from being displayed). Anyway, when I tested the mst install, it failed with error 2602 - "c2supprt.dll has no associated entry in the Media table". So I went back to the native msi and ran orca validation against it. It came up with a huge amount of ICE errors, incl ICE numbers I have never encountered before. Its great that the developers have not even followed the Windows Installer rules. So where should I start with this? Do I try to fix the ICE errors from the msi first (which looks pretty horrendous). e.g. ICE03 Warning String Overflow (greater than length permitted in column) Table: File. Column: File, .....
Has anyone else encounted this sort of problem with SCR or any app?

Need help please, Macca

I haven't seen SCR Pro V8 but one thing I like to do after I create the MST with the installTailor wizard is:
Open the MST, select Tools, Visual MSIDiff, then Compare Transform to Base .MSI.
This will display all the changes (only in the Setup Editor, tables area), Green for what's in the MST and yellow if it has changed a default from the base MSI.
This can be handy to see what changes are being made with the MST.
Also lookout for your capture user id's profile path.

If you have no joy and under pressure I've been known to re-capture vender supplied MSI's [:o]
