I am packaging Adobe Reader 9.4 using AppV 4.6. Our team has an MTS file with the changes we would like to apply to the install of Reader. During Monitoring I run this bat file to install Reader and apply the changes:
msiexec /i AdbeRdr940_en_US.msi /t Adobe_Reader-4.0.mst /qb

Some of the changes are registry changes to hide menu options like Updater and to not have Reader check for updates. During the Configuration phase however, none of the changes in the MST file appear to have been applied. Isn't AppV able to capture these changes made by the MST file during the install?

HI Scott,

App-v 4.6 Will capture the changes while using your MST also The only thing when the monitoring begins please give the folowing command in the cmd msiexec/i "path of msi"TRANSFORMS="path of mst" then press enter so that chnages which you made in MST also will capture as normal behaviour.

I am having a similar problem just manually installing reader 9.4. I have double checked my alterations in the Customization wizard and in Orca, but most of them like no shortcuts and the improvement program are not being applied.

I have a .cmd file with these lines.:

net use p: \\SERVER\SoftwareInstalljf
msiexec.exe /q /i p:\Reader94jf\AcroRead.msi /TRANSFORMS=p:\Reader94jf\jcpl.mst
net use p: /delete

You are using a fowared slash in you command line with TRANSFORMS. This isn't needed. Your command line should look something like this

msiexec.exe /i p:\Reader94jf\AcroRead.msi TRANSFORMS=p:\Reader94jf\jcpl.mst /q
