Adding installer properties to the base MST transform file

To extend installer properties or change default settings for Nomad clients, you can edit their associated .msi transform files by using a tool such as Orca a database table editor for creating and editing Windows Installer packages.

Info

Orca is a Microsoft tool for creating and editing Windows Installer packages (MSI) and merge modules (MST transforms). It is available from the Windows Installer Development Tools - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/msi/orca-exe.


The following example uses StatusMsgEvents to populate the Nomad Dashboard with status messages by modifying the x86 and x64 .mst files. When the wizard is ran, the new transform is applied to the deployment and package, and the new value is set when Nomad is installed.

The steps are recommended only for values unaffected by running the CDA wizard, because because updated base settings may be changed when the wizard runs. Please review Installer properties page to see which installer properties are used by CDA.
