Orca 5 – msi editing tool for Windows 7

I finally realised where to get hold of version 5 of Orca – the one most suitable for Windows 7 able to validate .msi files for Windows Installer 5. It was of course in the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4. Unfortunately there’s no mini-download for the msi sdk like with version 4.5, so for simplicity I’ve acquired the .msi for orca and put it online for download…

Orca 5.0.7693.0 (2.1MB)

If you would rather download the official version from Microsoft you need to install the debugging tools from the Windows SDK, then go in to Program Files\Windows SDK\7.1\Bin and orca.msi will be in there.
