I have a situation where I would like to deploy a couple of msi installers via GPO but I have the following problem:

runtime.msi requies a parameter passed to it or it wont install
winclient.msi has runtime.msi as a pre-req and wont install until runtime.msi is installed

[font="courier new"]call msiexec /i "%source%\runtime.msi" camos_dir="%programfiles%\camos"
call msiexec /i "%source%\winclient.msi"

The above two commands work fine, but since I can't pass in parameters in AD deployment I was wondering if there was someway to do this via a transform file for the runtime.msi

If this is possible please help!

call msiexec /i "%source%\runtime.msi" camos_dir="%programfiles%\camos"
is camos_dir not a property
I think it is
create a property in your mst with that value
then install the winclient msi first

then install the winclient msi first We can't do that, as winclient.msi has runtime.msi as a pre-req and wont install until runtime.msi is installed
