ADDLOCAL in command
Hi, i am installing an .msi in command line , msiexec /i <path of .msi> and one more command msiexec /i <path of .msi> ADDLOCAL=ALL,,,, i wanna know what the difference between these two? i know ADDLOCAL contians feautures delimited by comma and it installs locally, but mine doubt is "ADDLOCALL" what exactly it will do? is this installs features, from the source image on the target system, or something else, please provide a practical answer , so i can understand it well.
Thank in advance

Ok so doing a google search gets you this - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/aa367536(v=vs.85).aspx which pretty much explains it all in detail.
To summarize it, Adding ADDLOCAL=MyFeature to the commandline (not the Property Table) will install that feature only. You can install multiple features by as you mentioned 'comma-delimiting' them. i.e ADDLOCAL=MyFeature,MyFeature1,MyFeature2,etc. You can get the proper feature names required by editing package in orca(quickest!)
A more efficient way of doing this is by the feature table and adjusting Install Levels. Definition from http://pubs.vmware.com/view-50/index.jsp?topic=/com.vmware.view.installation.doc/GUID-F19EBDF6-20A3-4A8B-95AE-786CC74F26AF.html:Determines the component-specific features to install. In an interactive installation, the View installer displays custom setup options to select. The MSI property, ADDLOCAL, lets you specify these setup options on the command line.
