I am trying to come up with a patch strategy for my company's products. I am evaluating IS 11 to see if it will work for us, but I can't get past something...

We have two requirements:
1. We deliver our product as a single executable, so the MSI file is compressed inside it.

2. We want to be able to install removable patches.

I can create the patch okay after I uncompress the setup.exe's. The patch installation works great. The patch uninstall does not: it pops up a screen searching for the MSI file.

Are these two features incompatible? Is there a way I can have 1 and 2?

Thanks,
Paul
