Whenever I try to deploy Drupal using the Web Platform Installer command line using a parameters file, it always detects/chooses the server type of MSSQL even if we are using MySQL Parameter names.
Other apps are not having this problem, it seems specific to this app which suggests a problem with the package.
Example parameter names generated / used in the .app file:
Drupal w/ MSSQL:
Drupal w/ MySQL:
The following error shows that even though the app file is specifying MySQL parameter names it is erroring trying to find MSSQL parameters:
C:\tools\WebPICMD>WebpiCmd.exe /Install /UseRemoteDatabase /AcceptEula /Application:AcquiaDrupal@"C:\tools\WebPICMD\Acquia Drupal 70.app"
