I know you can set a setup.ini file to have the product key for say office 2003 and when you run setup.exe it will automatically put it in. I was wondering if this was possible with an MSI?

Hi folks,
please note that only public properties can be set on the command line and they are allways UPPERCASE. PIDKEY and INSTALLLEVEL are public properties.
To get a complete install, set the INSTALLLEVEL property higher than the biggest number in the level column of the feature table of a MSI-file.
Like allways, use ORCA to open the MSI and have a look.

Well, when handling office 2003 you should consider using the "Microsoft Office 2003 Resource Kit" instead to create your transform.
If the vendor has a tool to create a transform for their product then that would be the preferred tool of choice.

Hi folks,
of course AngelD is right with his statement about the MS ORK (another would be Acrobat with its Tuner). Overlooked, that eric initially refered to O2K3.
