MSI Properties

There are several notable properties that will be used many, many times. Most of them control
how a package is installed:
• TRANSFORMS—Specifies a list of transforms to apply to an MSI during package
• ADDLOCAL—Lists features to install on the local computer.
• ALLUSERS—Controls whether installations are performed for all users of the computer
or just the user running the installation.
• ROOTDRIVE—Controls which drive Windows Installer installs packages on—by
default packages are installed on the local drive that has the most free space.
• INSTALLDIR—Controls the exact directory to which a package must be installed.
• REBOOT—Controls whether the package requests a reboot after installation.
