    I've got a InstallShield setup, that UE is able to extract, but I still haven't found a way, to replace a file inside that cabs. i??comp says it's not IS6. But how do find out which version it is and how to replace files? (Or may it be easier, if possible, to dissamble the whole setup, like with WiX, and recompile it?)
