I recently discovered this awesome dotNetInstaller and I was wondering how I can add a .mst file.

There is no component for adding .mst'  so,  where do I  put the TRANSFORMS=my.mst ?

Msi > cmdparameters > TRANSFORMS=my.mst seems not to work

Best regards,

When you add this to the CMD parameters, what is in the log?

Thank you for the reponse ,I added the following TRANSFORM to the cmdparameters line

TRANSFORMS="#APPPATH\I386\NXCAST64\Siemens PLM Software NX 7.5 CAST.mst"

It looks if the cmdparameters isn't read at all
