I don't have a PIDKEY.
I just have a ISX_SERIALNUM key.
It's the same?

Yes its the same and PIDKEY is the Property that is passed along with the values. ie your serial number.

For example.

In Property tab enter the propert name as PIDKEY
and in the value tab enter the value as in your serial number ( Note: serial number entered should be without spaces of dashes).

Hope it helps you install silently.[:)]

I create the ISX_SERIALNUM property with the good serial number.
If a launch the test without argument (like msiexec /i XXXX.msi TRANSFORMS=xxxx.mst), the serial number field is correct and i can click on the next button and install my application without any problems.
But when i try whit MSIEXEC /i XXX.msi TRANSFORMS=XXX.mst /qb or /qn, i have a error message (the serial number is not valid or somthing like that)

I don't understant why

Have you an idea?

Thanks

I am not sure why are you getting a wiered error. Try only /q instead of /qn or /qb . and also try to use /v to pass these command lines to the WI.

Is the application Adobe professional or standard? If so then you need to use the Adobe Configuration Wizard to create the mst. You can get this utility from the adobe web site.

That's a application to convert in pdf format but that's not acrobat.
It's PDF Convertor Professional 5.

I try with only /q but that's the same probleme.

Yes its the same and PIDKEY is the Property that is passed along with the values. ie your serial number What gives you that idea?!? JCB, ignore that advice.

Try only /q instead of /qn or /qb
The /Q switch requires a following character (an 'n', 'b', 'r' or 'f'). The entire command line is ignored without it.

Now, to the problem...

Almost without question, there is a Custom Action which sets the property for the serial number. That CA is probably set to only execute in the User Interface sequence. Naturally, when you use the '/Qx' switch, there is no user interface and therefore no CAs which atre unique to that sequence get executed. You need to change the CA so that is executed at least once during an install. How you do that depends on what tool you're using to edit your transform.
