Hi everybody,

I have to distribute a special program. The installer consists of 1 big exe. Repackager gives an error, because there is an msi inside. I have distilled the msi (universal extractor), created an mst with install tailor, but now I have the error "error 2753, the file xxx.exe is not marked for installation.
I also installed orca, and did a search on this file. I found it several times, one time in the custom action table, action = runconfig, type = 220, Target = empty. Should this have a value, if yes, what should it be? If no, any idea how I can solve this error?
Any help is appreciated.

Hi again,

In the mean time I figured out that the error is related to the /jm switch I was using. I tried to install the program with the following command: "msiexec /jm gramssuite.msi /T gramssuite.mst".
Now I have removed the /T and the gramssuite.mst file, and the error message is still the same.
Then I tried "msiexec /i gramssuite.msi /T gramssuite.mst", the error message is gone, but no customized settings, and off-course, no silent installation

How can I install the msi with the customized settings in silent mode?

The /'T' switch is only used when advertising a package. For installation, use the TRANSFORMS property.

Thanks.
With the TRANSFORMS property it is installing, but no customized settings. It looks like the mst file is ignored.
Then I added also the /quiet switch, and now it is working.
Don't understand why it is not working without the /quiet.

You can check whether or not a transform is being applied by logging your install. The resulting log will contain many entries which detail the table(s) being transformed.

Have you tried adding the /c option to advertise a new instance?
