Hi,
I have "MindManager X5 Pro Admin.msi" and I'm trying to create an MST file.
Once I click on Finish, the screen of Capture froze.
Note: I did install ISSCRIPT 8.
Any help.
Thanks

It might be worth posting on installsite.org - it's more Installshield orientated.

Try downloading the "Install Tailor" from Wise (free) - it should work properly.

Or create your transform with Orca, and see if your software might be capable of editing it.

Sorry, the ISScript bit threw me - what's ISScript got to do with it then?

The Orca tip still applies though.

MindManager X5 requires ISScript version 8 or above to install. If I dont' install it I will get the following message: The InstallShield script engine is missing from this machine.
2- I don't know anything about Orca. Is their any site where I can go and learn more about.
Thanks

Orca is available as a part of the microsoft platform SDK. There are some other cool tools in there as well [8D] .

When I have trouble creating a Transform in the Install Shield gui I use the MSTran from the MSI SDK.

Make a copy of the current MSI and give it a different name, such as package_Tran.msi
Then edit the copy using your editor and make any changes you need.
Then run "MSTran.exe /g <path>\package.msi <path>\package_tran.msi <path>\transform.mst"

I haven't had any trouble with that apporch yet.

i thought the whole idea using transforms was NOT altering the .MSI [:-]

In reply to husema: are you doing an installshield or an MSI package? use Orca to customize a Transform for your MSI like Wise user suggests

ORIGINAL: Bartesque

Bartesque, the whole point is to not distribute an altered MSI. You make a good point, I did not mentioned that, but yes we only distribute the original MSI and the MST that was created. The modified MSI is discarded.

I do not suggest distributing the altered MSI, but using it as a reference point to create a Transform. The MSITRAN utility will take the difference between 2 MSI files and Create a MST. So it only makes sense to copy the original, add your modifications using your favorite tool and thus the when the MST is created you only have the changes.

No need to pay extra for a MST tool.
