Does anyone know where I can find information on how to install Brother P Touch software through the command line. I tried to run the MSI to create a transform and it tells me that the msi cannot run and that the program must be run from the setup.exe.

You can normally fool these MSIs by adding the ISSETUPDRIVEN property with a value of '1' to the command line:

....MSIEXEC /I [name_of_MSI] ISSETUPDRIVE=1 [other_arguments]

Make sure, though, that you re-run the vendor's setup.exe afterwards (having renamed the relevant 'Uninstall' registry key to fool the Windows Installer engine into believing the product isn't installed) so that you can be sure your package is complete. Many vendors are too lazy to switch the installation functionality that's been in their set-up stubs for years into their MSIs.

A rare error from you Ian, surely you meant to say

MSIEXEC /I [name_of_MSI] ISSETUPDRIVEN=1 [other_arguments]
