How do I repack an .exe?

By Level 11 Flexeran
Level 11 Flexeran
I've made a app distribution with InstallShield Developer, but since then, my server crashed and I didn't have a valid backup, of course.

The ready distribution is in .exe format, which includes the .msi file,, an .ini file, instmsia and instmsiw.exe and the setup.exe.

Now the problem is that I need to do a change to one of the files resources in the .msi file, that's all well since I can unpack all of the "big" installer .exe with the help of WinRAR, so now the changes are made.

But, how do I get it all back into the "big" exe? There are links, dependancies and stuff that I don't even remember how I set them up, it was quite some time ago I made the app.

In short, can I somehow just "put back" the .msi file into the .exe in some easy or smart way?

I thought maybe AdminStudio's repack function could do that neat trick but it doesn't seem to have that capability after what I can see.

Can someone please help me out here?

If you have each individual file available then you could use PackageForThe Web
to pack it back into a single setup.exe.
