We deploy our apps via SMS.

As an example, we have the following command line in the package for SMS:

msiexec.exe TRANSFORMS="editor.mst" /i "setup.msi"

This installs fine each and everytime for all workstations.

As another example, we have the following command line for a different package in SMS"

msiexec.exe TRANSFORMS="acrostan.mst" /i "acrostan.msi"

In this case, the TRANSFORMS are not applied.

I have tried removing " "without any change.

I've also discovered that if i specify the following:

msiexec.exe TRANSFORMS="\\server\share\acrostan.mst" /i "\\server\share\acrostan.msi"
everything works fine...i can duplicate this, and experience with other applications as well.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi f,

Is your .mst in the root of the source of the package?

The following SDK entry provides the rules for applying transforms:
