I'm trying to package a application with 3 advertised shortcuts.
Each shortcut give access to a version a database. Production / Acceptation / Test database.
So i make a base msi with 3 transforms (MST) included with 1 advertised shortcut. So far so good.
But i have challange that some endusers need 2 shortcuts together. Is it possible to install a base msi with 2 different transforms at one time? Alternative is thinking now is to make 3 base msi's but still wondering there is a better solution.

I don't know how your MSI/MSTs are constructed so couldn't guarantee that what you're porposing will work but, to specify multiple transforms, use a semi-colon to separate the transform names:

In your case I would still use 1 MSI, no need for transforms, then just use properties to toggle your shortcuts on & off, unless of course you really want to use a transform. A search for "condition, component" should point you in the right direction...
