Hello,

A question regarding isscript.

We have multiple apps which all uses a different version of isscript. So I made installscripts which first installs the proper version of isscript and after that, the vendor msi with a mst. So far so good.

Now we would like to have one vendor msi with a mst. And nothing more.

And now the question: in the mst:
- append the isscript files to the mst
- install isscript
- install the application

I played around in Wise Package Studio v5.60 but I did not get it working (only the first item worked).

Is there a way to get this done? (And not capture both the installation of isscript and the vendor MSI.)

Any help is appreciated. [:D]

With kind regards,
Willem-Jan

why you don't just run the vendor msi and make a transform from that msi

Hello Linstead,

Thanks for your reply. If I make a mst from the vendor MSI than I do not have the ISscript part.

And setup.exe /s/q/v"transforms=filename.mst /qn l*v %temp%/filename.log" doest not always work.

With kind regards... Willem

Have you tried:

Setup.exe /s /v"/qn \"TRANSFORMS=path\filename.mst\" l*v %temp%/filename.log"

The \" will allow you to put " around the path to the transform incase there are spaces in the path or the file name.

I would suggest staying away from adding the install script in an MSI. What we do is just deploy the versions of InstallScript to our clients so they are availalbe for which ever applicaiton may need them. We acutally build our clients with these MSI files for ease of distribution.
