I have an MSI install that I'm trying to create a Transform for. I do the following and Installshield locks up and has to be forced close.
Select new project
Select Transform from All types
Give it a name and path and Click ok
Click next on Welcome screen
Browse to MSI on the next screen
Click next on Additional Transforms
Click Finish on Create Response dialog
Now the Project Assistant opens
Click the next arrow
Click next arrow on application Information
Click next arrow on Installation Requirements
Click next arrow on Installation Architecture
Click next arrow on application files
Click next arrow on application shortcuts
Click next arrow on application registry and now I get Not responding at the top and the cursor is just a spinning arrow for as long as I let it sit there. I have left it here over lunch and it never comes back. It has to be killed at this point.
All those dialogs where I just click next I am just accepting the defaults and not making any changes.
Please let me know if i'm doing this wrong or is it broken?
The reason I'm trying to create a transform is because we want to be able to install our product more than 1 time. We currently do it with an installscript project but want to move to an msi install so we can do the web based installs that breaks it up into many cab files so you only need to download what you are installing.

Thanks
