Removing or adding extensions without scp2 (Windows)

Peter Eberlein-3
Hi,
is it possible to remove/add extensions from/to the standard
installation set, e.g. with orca-tool, and how?

Regards
Peter

Hi Peter,

surely it is possible to change the installation set using Orca (and
makecab.exe and msidb.exe and uuidgen.exe and ...). But of course you
have to know precisely what changes you have to do. You have at least to
change the table File, to add the extension. Then you have to define a
component with this file in table Component. And then it is necessary to
add this component into FeatureComponent table. Furthermore you have to
know how to add the oxt file into the installation set, so that the msi
database knows where the file is located. Do you want to include the oxt
file into a cabinet file or not?
I would strongly recommend to use scp2, because changes in scp2 are
absolutely trivial compared with the changes in Orca tool, because the
packaging process makes all difficult steps for you.
