Good afternoon, I have created and MST file for an MSI file. The installation goes through just fine when I execute the MST via command line or when deployed through our deployment tool. But I have ran into a Problem, the installation creates a registry key that does not allow an uninstall or repair unless this registry key is removed first.

This is the Key in question:


[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\B031C88397004B640A5DCDD27D8AA9B7]
"Transforms"=-

I have already edited the key so that whenever I need to perform an uninstall, I can just run this and it will remove the transform file information.

What I would like to do is to incorporate this into the installation so that the extra steps are not necessary. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Is this just with one MSI for which you create a transform or all of them? How are you creating the transform?

Are you importing a .REG file? I ask because that minus sign is used to delete registry keys and values and it seems likely that this is causing the problem you have.

Good morning VBScab,

I am using Wise Package Studio to create the transform file.

-----This is the first package that I create.
-----The registry key is created when I use the transform file to perform an install.
-----I am trying to get the install to stop creating or deleting the reg-key once the install has been completed.

when I use the transform file to perform an install. Please post the exact command line you're using.
