I was trying to modify the error message 1633 by providing custom string for the same by creating an entry in the error table. However, this is not reflected and I always get the default message - "This installation package is not supported by this processor type. Contact your product vendor."
Am i missing something. Can anyone throw some light on how these error codes are handled?

I guess that the Windows Installer engines hasn't even loaded the msi file at this point, since it found that it's not supported by looking at the summary information stream. In other words: this is a operating system error message and you probably can't change it.
