Transforms and Installscript MSI
Posted 08 February 2011 - 18:46
Because much of the installer functionality is contained in the script, I have no choice but to run it using a Setup.iss. Unfortunately I also need to customize the MSI (remove some shortcuts etc.) and the Setup.iss isn't going to cut it.
I've extracted the MSI and created my transform, but there would appear to be no way of applying it to the MSI... I've tried /V in conjuntion with the setup.exe, but had no luck.
Basically I need to know:
a.) Is it possible to pass a transform to an Installscript MSI via the setup.exe
b.) And this would be the ideal solution - is there a way of passing my Setup.iss response file directly to the MSI (therefore bypassing the setup.exe) so I can use normal msiexec command lines.

Should've thought of that - all the dialogs are run from the setup.exe so the setup.iss wouldn't be allot of good without it! Looks like I'll have to create some sort of post-config script for it...
