You're welcome. At first I thought it would be to much to explain modifying the tables, but by including tables for the user to import made creating the tutorial alot easier.

To get the files from Java you need to set a destination targetdir to extract the files to.

msiexec /a anyfile.msi TARGETDIR=c:\temp /qb
(the target directory must pre exist)
