I am going to create an active setup to perform a repair of an MSI to input the user settings. Pretty standard stuff there, but I want to add an MST to the MSI to set the language of the app which is also a user setting (HKCU reg key). Will the repair automagically use the MST as part of the repair or do I need to include it in the command line in the active setup?

I asked a similar question for this before, but this time I need to know if I can use the MST in the repair. The difference being that the default language is english and will only need to run the MST if the OS is not.

The TRANSFORMS property is ignored during a repair. Either create a new package comprising the registry data or un-install/re-install the package.

Thanks, thats what I was thinking and a secondary MSI is what I am leaning towards. Still, its a little unclear that if a transform was applied during install, is it also used as part of the repair even though its not referenced?

Transforms are applied if they were applied for the intial install but you said that you wanted to add an MST, implying that one hadn't been used before.

I get it now. That is the clarification I was looking for.
