I am trying to use the Kace 1000 Configuration Policies MSI installer to install a software using the MSI and trying to figure out how to get an MST to load in with the MSI.  I have created the MST and I figure I will have to change the command line to transform using the MST.

Flash as an example: msiexec /i install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi /t install_flash_player_31_active_x.mst /qn

  • Thank you for the command line. How will Kace know where to find the mst file?
    • I upload the zip of both msi and mst, then using KACE variables, it runs from the cache location; whatever it will be. See screenshot I added; maybe, can't seem to add one.

      Okay... so On Success, I Launch a program...
      Directory: $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)
      File: msiexec
      check the Wait for completion
      Parameters: /i install_flash_player_31_active_x.msi /t install_flash_player_31_active_x.mst /qn

You need to use the below property to apply the transform.

msiexec /i myinstaller.msi TRANSFORMS=Your.MST /qn


The /t is only valid(?) when you're advertising the product, which ive never done before. If you are unsure if the transform is being applied, just enable the msi logging.


*edit, grammar corrections.

A minor correction, if I may? ALWAYS use logging! If something goes wrong and you don't have a log, you'll waste so much time trying to determine what happened.

when [your] you're advertising the product, which ive never done before

In the years that I've been doing this, I've never worked for a client who advertised applications.
