Saves copies of transform files in a secure location on the local computer, instead of in the user's profile.
This entry stores the setting of the Cache transforms in secure location on workstation Group Policy. Group Policy adds this entry to the registry with a value of 1 when you enable the policy. If you disable the policy, Group Policy sets the value to 0. If you set the policy to Not configured, Group Policy deletes the entry from the registry and the system behaves as though the value is 0.
|0 (or not in registry)||The policy is disabled or not configured. Transform files are stored in the user's profile.|
|1||The policy is enabled. Transform files are stored in a secure location on the local computer.|
By default, Windows Installer stores transform files in the Application Data directory in the user's profile. When a user reinstalls, removes, or repairs an installation, the transform file is available, even if the user is on a different computer or isn't connected to the network.
When the value of this entry is 1, transform files are stored in a secure location on the user's computer, instead of in the user profile. Because Windows Installer requires the transform file in order to repeat an installation in which the transform file was used, the user must be using the same computer or be connected to the original or identical media to reinstall, remove, or repair the installation.
This policy is designed for enterprises that must take special precautions to prevent unauthorized or malicious editing of transform files.
To change the value of this entry, use Group Policy. This entry corresponds to the Cache transforms in secure location on workstation policy (Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Windows Installer).
For detailed information about particular Group Policy settings, see the Group Policy Reference (Gp.chm) on the Windows 2000 Resource Kit companion CD.
