Prevent HipChat Login Launch After Install Without Transform File?
Curious if anyone out there has figured out how to prevent HipChat from launching following installation using Atlassian's MSI? I tried using LAUNCHHIPONEXIT=0 or LAUNCHHIPONEXIT=-1 when executing the MSI, but neither one of those worked. By default, LAUNCHHIPONEXIT is set to 1. Ultimately, I used a transform file to change the condition that causes HipChat to open because its dependent on another variable that I can't modify.
Condition: LAUNCHHIPONEXIT AND UILevel <> 5
Condition: LAUNCHHIPONEXIT <> 1

When a property is used "bare" - i.e. with no explicit value - in a condition, the value assigned to it doesn't matter. You could have tried 'LAUNCHHIPONEXIT=AreYouSerious' and witnessed the same effect. What you need is for that property to not be there at all.
Thus your options are to edit the MSI directly and remove the property - not recommended, as you know - or use a transform.
My question would be, what's the big deal about using a transform, that you'd want to not use one?
