Hi,

I am trying to create a .mst file from an .msi file.  All I want to do is change the path to the server associated with this app.

Can anyone tell me how to do this as I am getting lost with all these options!!

Yes, I am trying to create a MST file and can not figure out where in the "Wise for Windows Installer" interface I change the path to the database associated with this application.  I need to include this and the option to supress the setup wizard so when I deploy the application through a GPO there is no user input required.

This is how I do it. Once you create MSI, go to file - save As
there choose the file type as MST and give a name to it. When you click save it will open a new dialog box where you can change base database and also add the other check options.

I already have the MSI as it was supplied by the vendor.

Could you walk me through the steps from launching wise?

My understanding is that I launch wise - click file new - other templates - transform - at this point choose the MSI.  From here I am lost as what to do next!

Hi,

I think you miss understand me, I have an application to deploy in the form of an MSI supplied by the vendor.  I need to create an MST file to amend properties in the installation appropriate to our organization.

Such as the location of the server which holds the database/files that this application use's, also I need to set installation type, ie Standalone, Client or Server installation and to control the presence or absence of the setup wizard.

The vendor has supplied the properties I need to amend and the possible values, for example to set the installation type:

Property: Installevel
Possible Values: 100 (Client) - 200 (server) - 300 (standalone)

I never did this but you can try:

after you choose the transform template go to features on the left, on the right add client,  when you are adding client under 'level' choose custom and set the value as 100, and do the same thing for server and standalone too... I am not sure if this is the one you wanted but when I tested it looks like what you asked
