Lotus Notes 8.5.3 InstallShield issues

It looks like 8.5.3 AllClient ( Notes client, admin, designer ) and Notes Client was shipped without the .itw file used for InstallShield. By accident I used the default.itw that came with the Install Shield program. If you do this you get an error like this:




"Tuner is unable to open the 'D:\temp\LotusNotes853AllClient\Lotus Notes 8.5.3.msi' MSI file. The ITW file prohibits opening of the MSI file."

And


"No Msi database is currently opened"

Also I tried using the 8.5.2 All Client "LotusNotes.itw" file because I read in a post somewhere that it would work. However, I get the same error:






Last I finally found a post to download the 8.5.3 itw file. Grab the lotusnotes8.5.3.itw here
