Dump -> MAKEMSI Format

This option invokes the "MsiDiff.VBS" tool to "decompile" any Windows Installer database (or MSI transform) file. If the file is an MSI based on "uisample.msi", then you may wish to use "Compare -> MAKEMSI Format" instead.

This option is available on the right click explorer context menu for all Windows Installer database file types.

A text file is generated containing human readable output which can also be processed by "MAKEMSI".
