SelfReg Entries

AdminStudio 7.5:
We have an msi for which we need to create a transform.
1)In this we need to remove the Self Reg entries. How can we do that?
When we create an mst for this we see there are many entires in selfreg table. we need to remove these.Where can these be put instead?

2) We need to remove all ICE errors in the transform. how do we proceed about this?

3)Also we need to add a few dlls/ocs to the transform. how can we do this not as external cab files

Thanks.

A few pieces of information that will be helpful:

1. For what you're looking to do, you'll probably want to use the AdminStudio editor to create the transform--it exposes more granular MSI functionality.

2. For removing SelfReg entries, you can do this by unchecking the 'Self Register' option in the file's properties. To still get the file registered, use the 'COM Registration' view to extract the COM data. This will be a sub-view of 'Setup Design' or 'Components'.

3. When you add new files in a transform, it should ask you if you'd like to stream it into a cab inside the *.mst.

4. ICE errors are documented in our helpnet as well as MSDN. If you click on the ICE error when validating, it should link to some information on how to resolve it.

Hi Cary,
Thanks for the replies.It helped a lot.I have a question point no 3.

3. When you add new files in a transform, it should ask you if you'd like to stream it into a cab inside the *.mst.

It does ask this but it either creates an external cab or all the files are place in a external folder. Is there a way to add these files to be within the mst itself rather than as external cab or external files. so we can have one mst file for a msi file with no external files or cabs.

Thanks
