I installed the Adobe Custimization Wizard 8 and built a transform for our coporate environment. We use Patchlink to push out corporate applications/utilities, so I built a package that copies the following files:
Abcpy.ini
AcroRead.msi
AcroRead.mst (the transform I created with the wizard)
Data1.cab
Setup.exe
setup.ini

to the %TEMP% folder. A script is then executed from %TEMP% which simply states:
msiexec.exe /i"AcroRead.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst"

However, every time I run this push (I even attempted it manually from the commnd line of a target system), the installer will NOT use the transform file. A coworker suggested that I use Setup.exe instead of msiexec.exe, so I tried:
Setup.exe TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst"

which has the same results of the transform not being used. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong?

TIA,
Jon

Well, I feel like an idiot now [:o] I just figured out what was going on. I just happened to notice that the wizard generates a setup.ini files along with the transform file. Out of desperation, I opened the setup.ini file, and noticed this section:

[Product]
msi=AcroRead.msi
CmdLine=TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst"

That got me to thinking what would happen if I just ran "setup.exe". Guess what, it ran with the transform. That is what I get for trying to make things too difficult.

Hope this helps someone else...
