The MSI Database and MSM Database project types allow you to edit Windows Installer installation databases and merge module databases directly, rather than working through an intermediate project format (.ism file). These project types extend the Direct Editor functionality to include different views that are supported in standard installation and merge module projects. The views that are supported in these project types are intended to function as they do for an .ism project.
There is no string entry or path variable support in an MSI Database or MSM Database project.
You can directly edit an existing .msi file or .msm file, or directly create a new database by opening a new MSI Database or MSM Database project. The data in this file should match what you would get if you created a blank Basic MSI or Merge Module project and built a database from that project.
