How to configure MST to accept input variable?


I am new to the AdminStudio package solution.  We are a retail company with hundred stores and serial hundred registers.  Our vendor msi or exe applications expect user input of either the store number or register number within a store.  

How can I generate either a script or MST for the installer to simply put in the store number or register number for the package to run for a specific store and lane?  A silient install would be better by simply accepting the store or lane number once.

I want to thank you in advance to share your experience.

Hi Brandon,
This may be what you're looking for:


You should have Installshield available as a part of the AdminStudio Suite. Then take a look into a Response Transform.

You can also use the cmdline to pass in MSI properties if you know the Property Name.


The above link also mentions the switches needed for a MSI silent\quiet install.


Hopefully the above information gets you what you need.

in what context? would this still be at the system level context? or can it be fit to set HKCU type entries? 

I have software that requires User level ID entries. Some are during, some are post.

Any help would be appreciated.

It should run in the user context. So you should be able to write to HKCU. I have done limited testing and created a transform that wrote a key under HKCU.

The key did not initially exist in the registry tables of the .msi but was added as a part of the transform. Running the .msi with the Transform wrote the key to HKCU.


We hope that helps.

Thank you RESMDS
