I have been trying different things with the client packager (/a option). Installing to both locally and network locations, etc but no matter what I choose on the compression method screen it still ends up defaulting to the uncompressed compression method. Neither the single MSI, nor the compressed option work for me, and I have tried this on different computers and everything. Any ideas, or has any one else run into this issue?

It sounds to me like you're adding files to a transform and expecting it to use internal CAB files? AFAIK, that can't be done. If you *have* to have internal CABs, your only option would be to add the files to the MSI directly, something which is actively discouraged.

Nope, I am just trying to do the initial administrative install where it has the three compression options nothing more nothing less, and no matter which of those three I choose during that administrative install it always defaults to the uncompressed.

So, what's 'the client packager'? Is it a tool supplied by Citrix? I read it as if you were creating a normal Windows Installer administrative installation point (MSIExec /A [MSI]).

Doing an administrative installation will always change the media to external files (instead of streamed or external cabinet).

Here's where I'm confused. The OP specifically refers to a 'client packager' but then implies he's doing an admin install. THEN he says 'no matter what I choose on the compression method screen it still ends up defaulting to the uncompressed compression method.' That makes no sense for an admin install since, as you say, you have no option.

Maybe he'll post back to clarify...
