Editing the MST File


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

i just got done creating the Office XP unattended install section of the unattended XP cd

I can't figure out step #22 changing the Transforms file to read

This command will perform a silent installation of Office XP using the Unattended.MST file you created in the Custom Installation Wizard to set your customized options. But we don't want to use the exact command shown above as this wouldn't exist when installing from a CD, so change:

TRANSFORMS=C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\Unattended.MST /qb-

to...

TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST /qb

how exactly do I change it to the proper setting ???

thanks in advance !!!!!!!

There are several things here that can cause confusion.

C:\XPCD\$OEM$\$1\install\Applications\OfficeXP\Unattended.MST

is from the local directory c:\xpcd that this person is using to organize the cd before imaging and burning.

When you do an unattended installation, all files are copied over to the hard drive and then everything is executed.

So, in theory you could reference the file in terms of c:\ if you were certain your install drive is c:\

It would look like this:

C:\install\Applications\OfficeXP\Unattended.MST

because $OEM$\$1\ is copied to the root of the drive (ie c:\)

However it is much easier to use a relative path (no drive letters) in executing the command.

just using TRANSFORMS=Unattended.MST means the MST file is in the same directory as the setup file.
