We have some troubles creating a patch with InstallShield X
Both using Patch desing view and with QuickPatch Project.

Our setupfiles are compressed in a single .CAB file. When the latest MSI package was selected in Patch design ISX asks for an dir to decompress the setup, but after selecting this dir decompression won't succeed.

Even using a Quick Patch project the original base package can't be compressed.

does anyone else has experience with patches in ISX?

Problems are solved now.
The path to the MSI packages constains a substituted drive letter.
On WinXP this is a known WindowsINstaller Bug.
