My suggestions is to either make an "QuickPatch Project" in the InstallShield 10.5 Editor, och just make a new, independent, package with the service pack-files.

If you modified a vendor MSI with your own MST and this Service Pack is in an MSP file, and you have not altered Product Code/Upgrade Code/Version then you can deploy the patch directly to the machines and/or patch your Administrative Install Point. If you did a capture, or over-modified the vendor's MSI, the Service Pack will no longer apply to your package. Either the Product/Upgrade Codes or Version would be different, which breaks MSPs, or the setup.exe style service pack will be undone in MSI self healing. In that case, your best bet is to create a new package that includes the Service Pack. You can also add the non-service pack version to the Upgrades section (i.e. Major Upgrade) so that the Service Pack package will remove the non-service pack package before installing.

Hi Vikingloki,
Thank you it gives me some guidness. Well so I can just add a Patch throuh Patch design in the same project and create a new release and the final setup will contain app+service pack. correct me if I'm wrong. My project has about over 200 different files in dir. structure. Can you also give me little more details how to use patch design. All I have is a source file from customer.
Thank you
