I am trying to create a silent install with a transform for Adobe Captivate 3.

I followed the instructions from http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=1164 and http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=325175&sliceId=1. I got the silent install working using VBScript but also need to use a transform. I can't seem to get that part to work; I get a 1603 MSI error (Fail to load: C:\DOCUME~1\WNTUSE~1.BF2\LOCALS~1\Temp\{2E7B6B00-5ECD-49A1-8FD4-4B647C5D8027}\adobelm_service_installer.dll). I am using a local admin account to test and am installing from a network share; we use SMS 2003 SP3 to deploy.

This works: Command: '%comspec% /c \\servername\updates$\adobe\CAPTIV~1.580\SMS\WXP\setup.exe /SMS /s /v"/qn /L*v C:\Logs\msi_Captivate.log ALLUSERS=1 ARPNOREMOVE=1 ARPNOMODIFY=1 REBOOT=ReallySupress SERIALNUMBER=\"xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx\"'

These do not work:

G'Day,

Er, I believe you can't use a transform for the setup.exe. If you referenced the msi on your command line and speced the transform with the correct Property values, you should have more luck.
