Alright, I'm fairly new to packaging and could use some help. I'm trying to package Adobe Pro 6. I'm using the adobe tuner to created the .mst file but how do I call it from the command line. This is what I've been trying to use: c:\adobeAcrobat6\acropro.msi TRANSFORMS=ACROPRO1.mst but when I try that I iget an error stating "Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid." But I know thats where the transform file is. Please Help. thanks.

You need to run the install using msiexec.exe - use full paths to avoid any probs...

e.g. msiexec.exe /i c:\adobeAcrobat6\acropro.msi TRANSFORMS=c:\adobeAcrobat6\ACROPRO1.mst

Cheers,
Rob.

Can you apply the transform to the MSI OK in Orca?

Remember to include quotation marks around your path names if they contain any spaces.

eg: msiexec /i "c:\download files\test.msi" TRANSFORMS="c:\downloaded files\transform.mst" etc etc etc

If in doubt, post your command-line...

yeah I've tried it every which way but it just wont work when I try to run the .msi with the transform file, if I just run msiexec.exe /i \\sjmhfs1\packages\Adobe\acropro.msi it will run just fine but if I try to run it with the transform file I created msiexec.exe /i \\sjmhfs1\packages\Adobe\acropro.msi TRANSFORMS=\\sjmhfs1\packages\adobe\AcroPro1.mst I then get the error stated above, very frustrating

OK, you need to do as 'MSIPackager' suggested and download ORCA.

ORCA is a utility to view the raw MSI, as in all the seperate tables etc.

You need to open ORCA, then load in your MSI, and then apply your MST on top. ORCA will give you errors if there really is an error.
