I am trying a printer driver application . When I am trying to install the application I am getting the following error
the file "hpzcin06.exe" file is needed on hp cd" type the path where the file is located
When I am specifying the path manually its working.How should I specify this in MY TRANSFORM. Can I write a custom action to call that Exe or is there any other method?

Thank you

What is the problem with adding the file to the transform? What tool are you using? If it's Orca or InstEdit, you REALLY need to know what you're doing.

Wow...you have a massive learning curve to climb, starting with the fact that you seem to believe that a file whose extension is ".ex_" will be executable...

I'm afraid I don't have time to enumerate the enormous number of steps you need to go through to get to a working install. I suggest that you first learn some operating system fundamentals, such as which files can actually be run. After that, read and digest Phil WIlson's The Definitive Guide to Windows Installer. After THAT, get yourself a decent MSI authoring package and learn to use it. Once you've done all that, you will hopefully have the level of knowledge that will allow you to get the most out of using tools like Orca/InstEdit.
