Generic Transform annoying bug


I am running into a problem when creating a generic template...

1. I opened the ORCA.MSI package in ORCA editor
2. Created a new transform
3. Added a property called "DIVISION"
4. Enter a dummy value for the property called "DIVISION"
5. Saved the transform.

I then copied the MST in a folder that contains one package (not ORCA) that I would like to transform.

Now, if I open the MST, it first prompt me that the file ORCA.MSI cannot be found and close my MST.

If I open my MST a second time, it then asks me for the MSI on which to base the MST (It lost the previous reference to ORCA) which is the behavior I am looking for.

Can someone tell me where there reference to the ORCA.MSI file in my MST can be removed?

Hi again,

Found my own answer ... it appears that if the MST is standing by itself in a folder (with no MSI beside it), whenever I open it in Installshield, I get the prompt to enter the MSI name as I wanted.

This isn't stored in the .mst file; instead it's stored in the recent file list used by InstallShield. See HKCU\Software\InstallShield\##.#\Professional\Recent File List.
