Thanks Uwe for you reply. However you used 'should' which brings some confusion to me! Did you mean that, **it is never possible** to modify those message given I only have windows binary?

You should always modify packages by applying the changes to the source 
package and reinstall that.  Hence ask those who provided the binary 
package for a source version.
