What is the down low on *.mcp file?

I have an application that has three install files.
1. *.msi (pre-req to main application)
2. *.msi (main app install). this is version 6.1 of the application
3. *.mcp (update patch file). this updates the app from 6.1 to 6.5

What program can be used to customize *.mcp file i.e. ORCA, etc? Can the update pacth file (*.mcp) be streamed into a *.msi file, so I have simpler install and a single *.msi?

Thank you!

If what your are talking about is an .msp ("patch") file, then there are no modifications that need to be done to that file. It should be "slipstreamed" into your .msi file.

The command is as follows:

msiexec /p [path\name of update MSP file] /a [path\name of MSI file] SHORTFILENAMES=TRUE /qb /L* [path\name of log file]
