Hi All

I am getting to my nerves when it comes to creating patches for Reuters as this is a vendor MSI where we are not having the freedom to change the product code.
The scenario where i am facing problem is given below

1. The requirement was to update a .VBS file (present in a component with a keypath to another file), Update the registry keys and add a create folder entry.The solution was provided as a patch but unfortunately, the patch got corrupt and the file was not updated. The package requestor came up with a change to the already broken patch for a change to a value.
Created a new patch file using Wise Package Studio and found that the files are getting updated and overwritten but the registry key is not updated.

Methods tried.
1. Run the patch with commandline "ADDLOCAL=ALL"(this is not much recommended).
2. Changed the component for registry entry's attribute to 68 (64 + 4).
3. Added a RemoveRegistry entry for the registry key that is being changed.

from all the above changes, nothing happens and the registry remains unchanged.

Please help me out if you had faced any similar problems or have any more suggestions. This is pretty URGENT sad.gif sad.gif sad.gif

Did you create a log of the patch install? Do you see SELMGR errors in it?
