Hi All,

Can you set something straight for me? Is it accessible to use active setup with transforms of vendor packages?

I seem to be having endless problems when attempting this. Active setup is run on login, but it looks to me as if the MSI repairs without applying the transform, i.e. the vendors default CU reg goes down instead of my custom transformed reg.

Am I missing something? I never have these issues when using active setup with my own packages.

Any ideas welcomed!

Charlie

Hi Charlie,
could you be a bit more specific, please.
What exactly did you do with your transform?
How do the Active Setup entries look?

Hi Charlie,
glad to see, you figured it out.
Just a hint:
Set it up like this:
[2] Software\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\[Productcode]
Value: msiexec /i [Productcode] /fup /qn
With this, you can always look for the Productcode entry in AS to find it.
BTW: Always fun to read your posts. :-)
