You need what's known as a response transform.

If you don't have an MSI authoring tool like Wise or InstallShield, but are relying on Orca or InstEdit, this is going to be a very long and painful process. You need to locate the properties behind the various dialog controls and use a transform to set those properties.

Meanwhile, check the 'Package KB' http://itninja.com/link/windows-media-player-10.x0

of course you were correct this is very painfull. I got the Nuance C++ runtime installed. Now whats killing me in this dang MST file. I started to use wise installtailer. but of course that did not work. (that would have been 2 easy.) then i opened it with orca & insted well i found the place to put the serial Number but still cannot find the area for adding name and company name type of install...

I started to use [wise installtailer] Wise InstallTailor. but of course that did not work. Why "of course"? And what "did not work"? IIRC, Dragon has a number of obstacles to running the MSI directly but most are easily bypassed.

Has anyone sucessfully pushed dragon 10 out with a MSI yet? I have it open in orca. The only thing i see plain as day is how to change the serial number? Below is a pic of what I see. Any guidance would be great? I clicked transfor and new transform.

Here's some basics. It's not really that hard to package.

Create an admin install

Create Transform

Set the following features to have an INSTALLLEVEL of 101 (of leave them as is, if you want to use these features)
-Tutorial
-TutDEU
-TutESP
-TutFRA
-TutITA
-TutNLD
-TTS
-TTSDEU
-TTSESP
-TTSFRA
-TTSITA
-TTSNLD
-TTSENX
-TSENG
-Speech
-DEU (set as a not required')
-DEUGeneral (set as a not required')
-ESP (set as a not required')
-FRA (set as a not required')
-FRAGeneral (set as a not required')
-ITA (set as a not required')
-NLD (set as a not required')
-NLDGeneral (set as a not required')
-ENX (set as a not required')
-AUS (set as a not required')
-ENG (set as a not required')
-IND (set as a not required')
-SEA (set as a not required')


Deleted the following shortcuts
-All Desktop Shortcuts
-Show Dragon Log
-Show Setup Log
-AutoTranscribe Folder Agent

Deleted the Merge Module 'ISUS' to prevent the installshield update service from installing

Set the following properties
REINSTALLMODE=vomus
ROOTDRIVE=C:\
ALLUSERS=1
AgreeToLicense=Yes
PRODUCTUPDATEFLAG=0
UPGRADESPEECH=1
_IsSetupTypeMin=Custom
REMOVEOLDPROD=1
REMOVEOLDDATA=1

The features whould be in the 'Feature' table

The shortcuts would be in the 'Shortcut' table

The properties would be in the 'Property' table

I assume that if you tried using the Wise Install Tailor utility that you have Wise (just a shot in the dark with that ;o]). If so, the just open up the MSI, click File-New, select 'Other Template' and select Transform.

Point it to the Dragon msi and then you'll be working in a transform that you can edit through a more friendly user interface than orca.
