Editting an MSP


Carolyn Napier [MSFT]

You can't edit an MSP directly. An MSP is a Windows Installer Patch file which
represents the delta between the target and update images. Orca provides the
ability to view the changes made by a MSP.

If you need to alter what an MSP does, you will have to rebuild the patch itself
(using tools like patchwiz.dll and msimsp.exe) by first making the necessary
change in the update image.

Hope this helps,
