I have a problem with WinInstall LE 2003 (free edition)

Indeed, it was working fine on my Windows XP SP1 but now I am not able anymore to import a package.
When I try to do it, I have an error : 'An error occured while importing the package'

I really don't know what could be the problem and I really need a free repackager...

Do you have any ideas regarding that problem ?
Do you know others free tools that permit me to change the GUID of a package and other stuffs like that ?

I really need one for tomorrow :/
Thanks for all

P.S: Sorry if I make mistakes but I am not english ;)

Hi bigstyle,

Have you tried installing WinInstall LE on a different machine to see whether you have the same problem?

Hi Bigstyle,

If you are in a jam then I suggest orca, microsoft free MSI editor, it just edits the MSI tables directly, so no pretty gui or anything like that but if you know your way around MSI's you can get some stuff done, and changing Package GUIDs shouldn't be too much of a drama.

Are you just having this problem with one package you are trying to import? Or any package?
