Can a MSI be installed using a transform as commanline parameters along with some other PUBLIC Properties?

For eg. When I try to insall an appication as follows

msiexec /i <path to MSI> TRANSFORMS=<path to MST> /qb INSTALL="D" DATADIR=C:\x

I am getting an error "Internal Error:Data2.cab"

There is only one cab file for this MSI and that is Data1.cab

Yes, you can use an MST in combination with other public properties.

I do not think the error has something to do with the properties. Have you tried to validate the MSI in combination with the MST? In Orca this is very easy.

What that's telling you is that according to the MSI, there are 2 cabs and Data2.cab can't be found. This can happen when re-editing transforms. Edit with ORCA and look for references to Data2.cab. If they look legit, you'll need to find data2.cab and put it where it needs to be. It could also be a bogus reference in the MSI and in that case, it's removed from the MSI.
