And can I edit it?

What am I talking about? When unzipped, installers have 6 files:
.data
.rdata
.rsrc
.text
[data-1]
CERTIFICATE

[data-1] is about 99% of the installer size so I presume the interesting bits are inside.

Why edit it instead of rebuilding? Testing - all I need to replace is a prq file (not even touching the app). This way we can do a quick sanity check rather than a full regression.

Googling revealed two conversations about this and neither could figure it out.
