I love this discussion database.
Finally I have someone to talk to about packaging.

Does anyone know how to verify (from the client side) that a TRANSFORM had been applied with the install?

I know I could check for the data the transform applied.
But is there a better method?

Nothing appears in the event log.

:cool:

I would assume that you'll be able to search for the GUID in the mst package. If not maybe you can include a unique registry entry in your mst package.

In addition, during the install you can create a log file which can clearly tell you that a given transform was applied.

Also, you can check the client machine's <windowsfolder>\Installer subfolder, you will notice that the transform has been cached.

The installer directory will do just fine.
I did not even think about looking there.

Thanks ;)
