I built package with - Adobe Application Manager.

Once done, I transform the MSI via WPS & export the Binary data from optionXML into a setup.xml file.

Now in this file, as I have done in all the other CS5 apps - If you add the section below (StartMenuSubFolder) to to the xml file & re-import it then it should set the default start menu, but not for this one.

This is one from phtoshop that doesn't work
<DeploymentInfo>
<DeploymentInstall>
<Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
<Property name="StartMenuSubFolder">C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Adobe\PhotoShop CS5</Property>
</Properties>


Here is one from InDesign CS5 that does work.
<DeploymentInfo>
<DeploymentInstall>
<Deployment>
<Properties>
<Property name="installLanguage">en_US</Property>
<Property name="StartMenuSubFolder">C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Adobe\InDesign CS5</Property>
</Properties>

As you can see they look similar & should work but doesn't
I also exported it back out to verify & its correct as above.

Did Adobe change the name or the way to make it work.

For those who asked -

You must export the binary table before you get the xml file.

I would use Orca for this - as Wise will add its crap to MSI & may break it.

open MSI in Orca

Click

Binary Table

on right side find optionsXML & select line.

double click on the [Binary data] & do what the popup box ask.

Since I mess up my Transform - I started over & this time I added the changed xml info into the MSI as a test.

That worked.

So you need to do this is in the MSI not the MST.

WI has no means to determine "internally" that changes are appplied via an MSI or an MST since the two are effectively merged at run-time.
