    Huh? The MST won't appear in the the RMMC, just assign the package and AppAgent will pick up the MST and handle whatever customisations it makes. Or have I misunderstood you?

    It usually does under 'transform files' and it doesn't pick it up.

    My RMMC doesn't - but then we don't have LST, that could make the difference. Or the fact that we're CC3!

    If on CC3 the MST file is specified in the ini package associated with the package but no it isn't show as a separate package in RMMC, it isn't picked up unless you specify the MST within the ini file I believe.

    If on cc4 it shows up within the properties of the package.

    Okay, worked this out I think.

    On CC4 in the installation settings you need to put TRANSFORMS=notebook.mst for example. It doesn't use the .ini file at all.

    I think that would work. I make all my packaes as CC3 them import the CC3 .ini file, as it works better and i know how to customise it a little better. So i do need the ini file untill it's into the CC4 XML file and uploaded. Thats just the way i work.

    I'll also add that once the package hits the management console on CC4, i dont know how to add the MST file. Couldn't find out ither.

    That might be where I went wrong. I didn't import it as a CC3 package.

    That said you still said the key didn't get applied didn't you?

    Now that the lastest versions are out shouldn't this be the same as the previous method for installing using the install manager. This is how I installed the previous version on CC4:

    +installed 'install manager' on server

    +used app wiz to add drivers .msi to package area
    +used install manager to alter driver settings (disable update) and create config .xml file (so can make alterations in future) then to publish transform (drivers.mst) to package folder.
    +added Transform=drivers.mst to commandline properties of package in RMMC

    +used app wiz to add notebook .msi to package area
    +used install manager to alter notebook settings (disable update again and put in path to gallery) and create config .xml file (so can make alterations in future) then publish transform (notebook.mst) to package folder.
    +added Transform=notebook.mst to commandline properties of package in RMMC
    +allocated to station to test

    Try it, it didn't work for me.

    +installed 'install manager' on server

    +used app wiz to add drivers .msi to package area
    +used install manager to alter driver settings (disable update) and create config .xml file (so can make alterations in future) then to publish transform (drivers.mst) to package folder.

    Does it matter that I had SMART notebook.mst with a space?

    Hmm I wouldn't have thought so...
    Do any of the settings contained in the .mst get applied?
