I have created a transform for the application Audacity 1.2.6. But when I am trying to install it with msi through commandline the installation does not complete. I am able to install through msi alone but not with transfrom. I have used VB script also but got the same problem.

In the log file when I found something that the ISS version is not able to run this however I can install though msi. Also I can run other transofrm created previously for other apps.

any suggestions..??[:o]

Did you create or generate the transform?
For the latter: Can't recall the exact name of the Property but do you have something like TempProperty.... in there?

  • I am not sure if this ticket has been closed or not, but here is something that i encountered lately
    i have an MSI somename.msi and two transforms, one containing the SHIM and other containing the license file. Now when i m trying to install the msi and mst's from command line, it says, error applying transforms. I regenerated the MST by dragging them over msi in orca, but the error remains the same. Any help from you guys

Yes..I have created the transform. Also I do not see TempProperty.

Maybe the association between the MSI and MST is broken. Did you move the MST to another folder after creating it? If you can edit the MST without it prompting you for the location of the MSI, that's not the problem...

If the install isn't working from command line, it's not going to work from a script either.

What did you use to create the transform?

There are a few possibilities.

First be sure you are explicit in the path statements in your command line. If it works without /q then you should have it proper.

Second, I have come across MSI's that refuse to allow the use of an MST, whether its entirely or just on some specific functions. In these cases, I created a second MSI to manage the post install changes. Not the best but it gets the job done.

Third, be sure that your MSI can be run directly without a setup.exe. If not, then you will need to check the syntax for running it with the setup.exe and be sure you get the command line correct.

Lastly, your MST might be corrupted. Try creating it from scratch. I've had a recent rash of corrupted MST/MSI while using AdminStudio 10/InstallShield 2011 and its bitten me more than once.
