    still not working, mine is:

    Install Files:

    \server\path\ComArchive for Outlook 2010-13-16 x86 (3.25.29).msi

    Parameters:

    TRANSFORMS="Link.mst" "the mst file is called link"

    Additional Files:

    \server\path\Link.mst

    It install the program, but it does not copy the link into the program, as when i deploy the program with GPO.

    Include Entire Directory?

    or

    create Custom Command Line step

    or

    create New Step > Command

    msiexec.exe /i "installer.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart TRANSFORMS="file.mst"
    

    Files: add your msi and mst

    or local pc install

    New Step > Install

    Install File

    $(Repository)\file\install.bat
    

    Parameters

    /silent /noreboot
    

    Include Entire Directory

    install.bat:

    @echo off
    taskkill /f /im outlook.exe /im lync.exe
    msiexec.exe /i "installer.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart TRANSFORMS="file.mst"
    

    I even needed onetime copy files with folder to target pc specific folder in order to work..

    Copy step:

    Source:

    $(Repository)\file\folder
    

    Target Folder:

    C:\Program Files (x86)\folder
    

    Command step:

    msiexec.exe /i "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\folder\install.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log TRANSFORMS="file.mst"
    

    If you can install in target pc locally in commandline or powershell with all your transform and silent parameters then it must work also from pdq, maybe package options "Run As" etc?

    If you don't already have it, download the Adobe Reader DC installer and look at the steps in that. I believe their use of the .msp would be the same as if you used the .mst if your install.

    Hey thx for the reply.

    now i have tryed all af your suggestion, but are not using the mst file, like the gpo do. So if i deploy it with DPQ i have to manually put the link into the ComArchive addin in outlook. I can't see why it does not work.
