I am running an install from the command line using the following syntax

MSIEXEC /i msiname.msi TRANSFORMS=transform1.mst;transform2.mst

I am trying to deploy this to a 2003 STD Server, it gives me the error

"Error applying transforms. verify that the specified transform paths are valid"

I have checked and double checked everything, i am deploting with MSI v3.01 can anyone shed any light on the problem?

Try adding the path to the msi and mst files.
ex.
MSIEXEC /i "\\server\share\directory\msiname.msi" TRANSFORMS="\\server\share\directory\transform1.mst;\\server\share\directory\transform2.mst"
be carefull with directories containing space.

Try to pindown the error, just have one transform and see if you get the same error.

Hi Merlin

Just experienced similar problem this morning. Taking the "S" away from "TRANSFORMS" resolves this. Its strange but it works.

Property should still be TRANSFORMS for multiple transforms.

From Msi.chm:
to apply three transforms to a package, set TRANSFORMS to a list of file names or to a list of full paths.
TRANSFORMS=transform1.mst;transform2.mst;transform3.mst
TRANSFORMS=\\server\share\path\transform1.mst;\\server2\share2\path2\transform2.mst;\\server3\share3\path3\transform3.mst

Have you put a /L*v c:report.txt on the end of your MSIEXEC statement to see if the install log sheds any light?

Just my guess...

would you please check "(quotation) ?

msiexec /i xxx.msi transforms="yyy.mst";"zzz.mst" /qb!....

--> if you typed like above, you must exclude quotation in the middle and wrab whole list, that is

msiexec /i xxx.msi transforms="yyy.mst;zzz.mst" /qb!....
