Generate a Transform
The VBScript file WiGenXfm.vbs is provided in the Windows SDK Components for Windows Installer Developers. This sample script can generate a transform from two Windows Installer databases. For more information see Database Transforms.
The sample demonstrates the use of:
You'll require the CScript.exe or WScript.exe version of Windows Script Host to use this sample. To use CScript.exe to run this sample, type a command line at the command prompt using the following syntax. Help is displayed if the first argument is /? or if too few arguments are specified. To redirect the output to a file, end the command line with VBS > [path to file]. The sample returns a value of 0 for success, 1 if help is invoked, and 2 if the script fails.
cscript WiGenXfm.vbs [path to original database][path to revised database][path to transform file]
Specify the path to the original Windows Installer database. Specify the path to the revised database. Specify the path to the transform file to be created. If the path to the transform file is omitted, the two databases are only compared.
