Recompress AIP

I have an AIP that I wish to recompress using wimakcab.vbs. The problem is I will be pushing this over a very limited bandwidth connection so I have deleted a few large files that are not needed by the installation. I have created a transform that excludes these files during installation. Wimakcab.vbs complains about the missing files. Other than actually modifying the original msi and dropping the files from the file table is there a way to accomplish this?

It's only a script, Joe. Edit it so that you can pass an exclusion list, either in a dictionary or an array. Done properly, you could have it read a file containing a CRLF-delimited list of files to exclude.

... or you could always 'cheat' and replace the large files in your AIP with zero byte files of the same name

Like it, like it...

(Shouldn't that be "kludge", BTW?)
