i have to run a .msi file through c# code and it generate the mst file. I need to save the .mst file in back end. I can get the save dialog box , but it should save automatically without the user interface

We can do the same functionality in autoit script.

WinWait("Save Transform")
WinActivate("Save Transform")
ControlSetText ("Save Transform", "","Edit1", $strMSTNamewithFullPath )

i want to do the same in c# .

Please assist.

Then don't use the SaveDialog.

But i need to save the file.

Then save it. The SaveDialog is a dialog for collecting information from the user, it has nothing to do with saving of files.

If i run a command like this "D:\Users\\Desktop\MSITransformTool.exe" D:\Users\Desktop\Orca.Msi . it will create a .mst file and it open a save-as dialog popup. i want to pass the filepath parameter and should save automatically without any user interaction.(suppress the save dialog box)

As I said, do not use the dialog. You have the filename, so just open the file and write the information to it.
