Hi,
I have a vendor created setup which consists of a setup.exe that calls 2 or 3 seperate .msi's. I have created a transform for one of the .msi's as I needed to add some personal settings in there. My problem is how do I run it, if I run the setup.exe how/where do I specify the transform I need it to use for one of the .msi's?

I don't believe that you can. I think you're going to have to create your own stub and alter the command line call to MSIExec to suit.

Thanks for a quick response. Sorry, I'm new to .mst's so don't fully know all the commands. When you say "create your own stub" what do you mean? What would I alter the command line call to be?

Have a search in AppDeploy for "wrapper" (actually, I think Kim - AngelD - posted a couple of links to a post of a couple of days ago). It's well documented here.

As for the command line:

MSIExec /I [path_to_and_name_of_MSI] TRANSFORMS=[path_to_and_name_of_MSI] [other arguments]

Hi Sarah,
depends on which Tool the vendor used to build this package.
Installshield in later versions supports passing commands to "MSIEXEC".
