Negative sequence number in the file table
I have a problem with a large package where the number of files exceeds the 32767 limit. I have changed the definition for sequence and last sequence columns in the file, media and patch table in the ISMsiPkg.itp to long integer, and if I make a small installation and check out the database it looks ok.
But when I generate my real setup the file table contains negative sequence numbers. The setup is compressed and as I have understood it the tables are rebuilt after the CAB-file(s) is made. So maybe that's when the tables get f....d up.
Anyone who has seen this before?
