I suppose you would need some sort of MSI to XML converter which will strip it all apart so that you can edit the contents, and then you will just need PACE or any similar application to put it all back together again.

 

I am intentionally being vague as what you are trying to do could very easily be illegal if you do not own the copyrights to the MSI you are messing with (and if you did you wouldnt need help)

Hi geoffrey,

 

thanks for the reply.

 

I have the rights to edit the msi file, as the company who supplied to me have told me that they would take more than 30 days to do this work. (i will send more details as a message to you).

 

kindly help me out with a detailed information if you can.
