[HOW-TO] create modified WLM8 msi file

Recommended Posts

There is an project for editable Windows Live Messenger addon but because of some multilanguage files setup does not work for everybody.

Apps we need.

1. msi2exe

2. MD5 creator (Little MD5-Creator, ...)

Extract MsnMsgr.msi from Install_Messenger.exe with winrar or another program.

Copy to same folder msi2xml.exe and xml2msi.exe.

In command prompt.

msi2xml.exe -c files MsnMsgr.msi

This will extract all files to "files" subfolder and will create MsnMsgr.xml file.

Now you can replace your patched files with original ones.

Please use the same file names in original files folder.

msnmsgr.exe=>msnmsgrexe

msgsres.dll=>msgsresdll

MSIDCRL40.DLL=>SDKCOMPONENTS_PPCRL_MSIDCRL40.DLL.1312FADD_90E2_487F_B4BC_5B3F1469FB3C

Create MD5 hash for new patched files.

Edit MD5 lines in MsnMsgr.xml.

You can find them by searching names like this.

msnmsgrexe" md5="

msgsresdll" md5="

after you replaced new md5 hash in xml file you are ready to finish job.

just type in command prompt

xml2msi.exe MsnMsgr.xml

Congratulations! You have a brand new modified messenger setup file.

Now you can create an addon with this file.

Compress with Winrar in silent sfx mode. U can use below line to Run setup.

msiexec.exe /quiet /norestart /i MsnMsgs.msi
