Our company uses Active Setup to work around features being installed to the user's profile (HKCU, My Documents, etc...) mainly because they don't want the user to see the MSI progress and open a ticket with the helpdesk. Does something like msiexec.exe /fu "NameOfTheMSI.msi" /q work or is there some other command?

TIA

Instead of NameOftheMSI.msi you should use ProductCode of the msi

If the msi uses and mst for configuration for something like license server info or user specific configurations, will that be included as part of the repair or do I specify that as part of the command?

msiexec.exe /fu "NameOfTheMSI.msi" TRANSFORMS="NameOfTheMST.mst" /qn

no, referencing the transform is only needed during initial install.

Thanks again for the response.

We will be changing our packaging standards next few weeks to using msi's and self healing along with active setup in the next couple weeks and wanted to be sure I had an understanding of how it works.
