Re: edit file path in orca
You need to modify the Directory table. It's worth looking at the MS Windows Installer Database Reference pages, but briefly;
the Directory field contains the internal reference name for the directory
the Directory Parent field refers to another entry in the same table
the DefaultDir field refers to the actual directory name.
So, for example, if your app installs to C:\Program Files\AppName, there will probably be an entry whose 'Directory Parent' field points to ProgramFilesFolder, and whose 'DefaultDir' is 'AppName'. You should just be able to change 'AppName' to whatever you want.
I would reccomend that you create a transform (.MST) file with your changes in it although I have had few problems directly editing MSI files.
