Nothing has changed in AdminStudio 11.5 for creating MST files for at least 8 years or so..;-)

use Tuner or Installshield Editor (open MSI and then save as.. MST)

  • But I have to launch the application and need to pass the license information in help\update license. If I open Msi and save as MST how can I pass this liscense.
    • on the commandline when running the MSI installation use
      Msiexec.exe /i <path to msi> TRANSFORMS=<path to mst>
  • If license key is entered during dialogs, you can create a response transform ( here you can run the full UI and populate all the variables asked) or open the MST and go directly to the Property that needs to be populated.

Seriously? After all this time packaging, you're asking this question?

- Install the app
- Start a capture
- Add the license
- Stop the capture
- Merge the registry and/or file components into the package
- Book a refresher training course!
