Determining Transform (MST) Contents

This training video explains transform files and walks you how to determine the contents of a transform file you may receive from a vendor or co-worker using Package Studio, AdminStudio, ORCA and a freeware tool from the Office Resource Kit.


Running Time: 10:29



Just how to go about seeing just what an MST does to a MSI differs between products so video demonstrations are provided for several popular tools: Package Studio, AdminStudio, ORCA and even a freeware utility called MSTView.exe.


Even if you do not make use of all of these tools, this video provides a good first hand look at each of the tools to help you become more familiar with what is available.

    I can't see no link. - nyninja 5 years ago
  • It would appear that the links are now missing. The content is rather old, but still relevant.

    The creator of the videos is no longer associated with ITNinja - but if you search YouTube for 'appdeploy bob' you may find what you're looking for. - dunnpy 5 years ago
