Hi All

I hope someone can point me in the right direction here. I am very much a beginner in the packaging scene so please forgive if this question is a no-brainer.

I am trying to create a transform of an MSI, particularly the MS Softgrid Client for Desktops v 4.2. This MSI can have a number of command line parameters which configure how the Softgrid Client is deployed. These work fine when used with msiexec.

What I would like to do is deploy the MSI via a GPO which from my investigation so far does not have this capability.

I notice from the tutorials on this site that this most likely could be accomplished by creating a custom action to run a setup.exe with command line parameters but this voids the other benefits of using the GPO, self-healing, rollback etc.

I have investigated the MSI using Wise Package Studio and have found one of the command line parameters in the the script (changing a value here seemed to change the default value assigned in the table) and although I can find the other command line parameters in the table, there seems to be no place to assign a value for them in advance.

The command line parameters I am looking to set are;


Any help or pointers appreciated.

That shouldn't be too hard.
Add the properties to the Property table in your transform with appropriate values.
