Hi All,

Iam unable to package the Acrobat MSI using the advanced mode of Radia 4.1 publisher.
I have tried the following options,

i) Publish using an AIP option
ii) Without the AIP option
iii) With the MST transform provided by Acrobat utility ( Acrostan.mst )
iv) Without the MST transform

I always get a 709 method error during the installation.

When I use the basic mode without the transform to publish the package I get the installation prompt for serial number so this looks like ok. But the down side of this method is it downloads 300MB of source on to each machine and it will not be a managed package. Also the manual installation of the source With the transform work fine.

I had also tried installing it using a admin account. Still it used to give the same error. Iam a creating a new folder and then publishing to it as an AIP. I have tried using the RadiaMSI /I option. Also tried with other combinations of switches.

Is it possible that Acrobat MSI is not in the proper format as in the MSI properties its showing as Admin_Install is No.

Is it possible to make changes to use the AIP option as then the 300MB source doesnot download to each client.

Also whats correct command to install the RadiaMSI /i for calling a transform in the passive or quiet mode. Note in the transforms tab I have already selected the transform file. I have a doubt that its taking some default MSI values rather than the transform.

Please advise if any one has encountered this issue and found the solution.

Thanks & Rgds,

I have found one more clue here....when I do an AIP install with the RadiaMSI /i "/qf"
I can see the MSI setup call the transform with the correct serial number but when I click next it says invalid serial key though its the right key ( as it goes to the next step in manual install whcih is the type of install - Typical complete custom).

I presume you mean that you're trying to create a transform using Radia, rather than re-packaging? If the latter, forget it. Never, ever re-package MSIs. If teh former, forget that, too. Adobe provide customisation tools which you should use to create transforms for their.........idiosyncratic MSIs. Any other route will almost inevitably result in your commital to the nearest hospital which features rooms with padded walls.

As VBScab said, use their tool to create the transform.

From a Radia perspective try publiishing the MSI without the transform, confirm it works and then republish with your new vendor created transform, should work. Also try using the long filename option as this may also be the route course of your problems and tbh should be used at all times anyway.
