I think you are following a wrong process.. You should not repackage any vendor msi.. Instead, you should create transform (mst) for the vendor msi to apply standards and customization..

Moreover, For most of the adobe products, Adobe is providing customization wizard. you have to use it to create transform..

  • No friend... am asking about, first we wil do the tech review of any .exe(legacy)....
    When u repackage adobe product .exe to .msi.

    In Tech review, %temp% folder we wil get the .msi prodcut.
    for that we apply standards and customisation.
  • When you say, exe to msi it means that you are repackaging..
    When you say, creating transform for vendor msi, it means that you are transforming vendor msi..

    Adobe!!!!, I hope you are refering to Adobe Reader...
    Adobe Reader exe is not a legacy exe.. It is an exe which inturns call a msi..
    In this case you have to follow transforming vendor msi method and create mst..

If you get an MSI in Tech review, use that MSI and customize it using MST.

No need to repackage it.
