I tried to distribute a package created with the Install Shield tuner 6.0.1 from Adobe with Zenworks.
I created one new .mst file with the required settings and attached it to the existing .msi and .mst files on the CD.
When I try to distribute this package, I get an error in the logfiles of Microsoft Installer "Error 1606.Could not access network location \.". Displayed error is always "Error 1603".
I always used UNC pathnames in setting up the .mst files and destination directories. Is there anyone with the same problem?

Thanks in advance

I finally found a solution, seems to be problems with the MSI installation, when it is not run from Install Shields Setup.exe (I tried to install it through msiexec.exe)
Instead I am now starting Setup.exe directly with Zenworks (with option "run as unsecure system user" and working directory set to path, where Setup.exe is located) and the following command line parameters:

/L1031 /v"/qb- TRANSFORMS=\"Name of transform file\" ISX_SERIALNUMBER=xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx"

Option /L1031 will install Acrobat in german language, without this option it will only install in english.

Works fine for Win98 and WinNT. For WinXP (and Win200 I guess) you have to copy the complete installation directory from a network location to a temporary folder on the users harddisk and run it from this location, because tasks running as unsecured system user don't have access to network locations.
