products using InstallShield Tuner

For most Adobe applications a license key and other company specific information is
required.



InstallShield Tuner for Adobe 7 and Adobe 8 will generate an MST answer file that can be
used for a LANDesk Software Distribution task.



The location for the Adobe 7 InstallShield Tuner download is here:

Once the MST file has been generated, the following steps must be taken to use it in a
LANDesk package:



1.   Download and install the Installshield Tuner. Run it, and it should create a .mst
answer file that the msi installer will use. This will contain the organization info, license key,
etc.



2.   Once you have the .mst file, copy it into the same directory that the installer is in.

3. Go to the properties of the MSI distribution package, and in the Install/Uninstall options
put in TRANSFORMS=MSTFILENAME.MST (replacing that with the actual name of your
mst file).



4. Go to the Additional Files section and put in the path to the mst file, and add it as an
additional file.
