Apply a Transform to your Installation

You will need to deploy your transform with the primary installation. Transforms can be used with any install started with the InfoConnect Setup program (setup.exe) or with command-line installs (used by many deployment tools). The installer can only apply transforms during an installation. The following procedure describes how to add your transform file to installations started with the InfoConnect Setup program.

To add the transform to an install started with setup.exe

  1. From your administrative installation point, open the Installation Customization Tool from a shortcut or by typing the following command line:

    path_to_setup\setup.exe /admin

  2. Select Open an existing Setup customization file or Companion installer, and then click OK.

  3. In the Open dialog box, browse to select your transform (.mst) file.

  4. Click User interface and select Use this customization with interactive installs using setup.exe.

    When you save your transform with this option selected, the Installation Customization Tool automatically updates the setup.ini file to apply your transform to the InfoConnect installation by adding the following line to the [Setup] section:

  5. From the File menu, click Save. (If Save appears dimmed, click Exit and you will be prompted to save the file.)

    The transform can now be deployed to end users via the setup.exe file. (Users can run setup.exe, the setup.exe file can be called from a script, or setup.exe can be initiated from a command line.)
