There needs to be a property set in the transform called ECOPYACTIVATION with the vale set to the product key.





The problem I'm running into is that after adding the registry keys that does the activation, it comes back still asking for activation stating that the grace period has expired.

Is there a way to pass the license/activation key onto the program while installing through a switch or property?

Note: The install does not ask for the key while installing but on 1st launch.

activation a pain while repackaging, because all vendors use their own method. I've seen software activation that keys off machine name to make sure it's not installed on more than one machine. These types of things you really can't repackage.

You can always ask the vendor, assuming the product is properly licensed

It's a site license key.

I'm sorry, I reread your original question. I thought you were trying to repackage with the activation keys.

If ECOPYACTIVATION is a Windows Installer property you should be able to pass it to the MSI on the command line, i.e. msiexex.exe /i setup.msi ECOPYACTIVATION=xxxxxxxxx /other switches

If that doesn't work for you or if putting it in the transform doesn't work that's a vendor issue, they should be able to give you a key that works.
