This is a Vendor MSI. I am trying to embed the license key into the MST, But looks like it does not accept it. I tried copying the registries too, but that failed to take the keys .

By using the Command line it works. But I was wondering , if i can do it on the MST itself..

There is a property NPSERIAL=------- , I did give the license key in there. But still failed.

Can anyone help me with this, Is there anyother custom actions I need to do for this. How do I proceed.

  • Is the key added at launch or installation time?

    Log a manual installation where you enter the key and see what Property in the log is populated with it.

    Then compare it to adding it on the command line log , and then compare it to your MST log.
    It could be a Custom Action is resetting the value somewhere - the logs will tell you.

    Hope that helps,

NPSERIAL property value should not be having any space or dash in it's value..
