The latest update of Windows Live Messenger is an msp added to the package. I want to patch a msp into an msi.
I extract all msi and msps from this.
(To get the msp and msi's I did the following Use resource hacker to open up wlsetup-all.exe
In the left hand tree browse to PACKAGE Right click PACKAGE, save PACKAGE resources Save to a new temp folder Eg. D:\temp\package.rc
This will output a whole lot of .bin files These are just cab files so we need to do a mass rename “ren *.bin *.cab”
Once done select all cab files and extract to a new sub folder \extracted In \extracted you will see all the msi, msp and 7z files you need)
I try to apply the msp directly with no result msiexec /p messenger.msp /a messenger.msi
I also try doing a admin install with nothing being extracted.
