You create a response transform using InstallShield Tuner for Lotus Notes. When you try to run the install through the GUI (not silently), using this transform, you get the following error:
Resolving the problem
Response transforms are designed to be used during a silent install. This issue does not occur when running the install silently. For example:
Does not work: msiexec /i "Lotus Notes 8.5.3.msi" TRANSFORMS=Mytransform.mst
Works: msiexec /i "Lotus Notes 8.5.3.msi" TRANSFORMS=Mytransform.mst /qb+
The root of the issue is that the response transform fills in certain user-specific paths, such as UsrManifestLocation and XPD_USERHOME. When you run the install through the GUI, it attempts to honor these values, which it can not find.
