I'm trying to apply an MST to a MSI package (Volo Viewer Express 2.X) from within AD for deployment, which results in the following error:

An error occurred accessing the software installation data in the active directory. See the event log for additional details.
The following is logged in the event log:

Software Installation encountered the following error: Error applying transforms. Verify that the specified transform paths are valid.
I've created the transform using InstallTailor. The application installs fine by launching the shortcut created by InstallTailor, which references said transform.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, are you using WISe or Installshield?

Try opeing the MST against the MSI withing the main develoer tool (for installshield, its Developer) and just do a save. This will re-associate the MST to the MSI.
