Hello All.

Does anyone can give me a brief explanation/instance about these two properties?

Yes, MSDN is there but it explains limited no examples and scenarios.

MSDN seems crystal clear to me!

[quote]Windows Installer interprets the TRANSFORMSATSOURCE property to be the same as the TRANSFORMSSECURE property.[/quote]

I really can't see how much more obvious that sentence could be.

[quote]Setting the TRANSFORMSSECURE property to 1 informs the installer that transforms are to be cached locally on the user's computer in a location where the user does not have write access. Setting this property is like setting the TransformsSecure policy except that the scope is different. Setting TransformsSecure policy applies to all packages installed by a given user. Setting the TRANSFORMSSECURE property applies to the package regardless of the user.[/quote]

Again, pretty clear to me but I've underlined the crucial part.

Find yourself a copy of the SDK help file MSI.CHM - just google on it. Then you can look up all these MSI related questions directly.
