Hello, I have a small problem!
I made my installer @ my friends pc a little while ago and I lost the project files so I could have been editting it easy, but my problem is now I'm editting the .msi installer, but how can I add the new files again trough Build>Release Wizard? It won't allow me?!?

Can someone help me! Thanks :)

(I post this thread also in other forum because I don't know if this is the rite one)

If I understand you correctly, you want to edit the .MSI file. You should be able to do this - to add files, it should give you a view to manipulate files. Check it's not saying Read-Only at the top.

You can also regenerate the project files (though you will have to re-enter some information) by going to file>open, and selecting Wizard in the drop-down box at the bottom of the dialog.

After editing tables in MSI directly, it is always recommended to run Full MSI Validation Suite to ensure database integrity.
