HI All,

We are currently running Citrix Metaframe XPe FR3 SR3 on fully patched Windows 2000 Servers.

I have created a transform file for an application using InstallShield V10.5. Everything runs fine during the mst creation process. No errors are reported. We can run the MSI using Windows Installer and specifying the mst file on a workstation without any issues. This has been done as part of our testing process.

When we add the msi package to Installation Manager and then specify the mst file and click on okay it throws up the following error message:-

"Failed to add package xxxxxxx, unspecified error"

The following error is reported in the event log:-

"Source:Installation Manager
Event Id.:3601
Description:Error:Function failed during execution.
, Details:MsiDatabaseCommit "

Has anyone had this problem when trying to add a transform?

Thanks in advance

I'm fairly unacquainted with Citrix, but I have a few of questions :

1) Is the package you are trying to add into Installation Manager already installed on the system on which you are running Installation Manager ? - I have heard of a few problems if that is the case. If so, might be worth uninstalling the package on that machine and retrying.

2) Can just the base MSI (without the transform) be added to Installation Manager successfully ? If so, it does seem to point to an issue specific to your transform.

3) Have you validated the base MSI plus transform within InstallShield (or using a tool such as ORCA) ? Did you see any validation errors ?
