Do you mean you created a transform? Wrapping is something else, where you wrap a vendor's installer inside an MSI.

Coming to your error, my advice as ever is to run ProcMon before launching the app. This free utility will show you all the file & registry access which the app is using. Remember to enable its 'Advanced output'. My guess is that you have a file/registry permissioning issue, where the app is trying to write a file or registry key which your environment is disallowing.

i already run regmon and filemon, also wrapper mean i need a setup.exe file so i created a wrapper. because adobe only give you a msi file i we use setup.exe to deploy software.

And you gleaned nothing from those two tools? *Something* must be causing the app to crash...

BTW, you'll find ProcMon much more useful than FM/RM, not least because you can add so much more filtering. As you know, you can only add so much to FM/RM before they choke. It's from the same SysInternals author.

Is this a volume licensed product you're deploying? Why not use the MSI? there's not all that much you would need to change or create an MST for. I've seen the EPIC issues before when trying to use a vollume key on retail media or vice versa.
