We report on structural and transport properties of Ni-Mn-In thin films. The results obtained indicate that the transport properties of the thin films strongly depend on the structural ordering of the films. Specifically, annealing converts the semiconducting-like character of the resistivity into that typical for metals. This is due to annealing-induced crystallization of the asdeposited films which are in partially amorphous state. In both the as-deposited and the annealed thin films the field dependence of the resistivity is negative, which is typical for thin films of Heusler alloys and can be ascribed to the suppression of the spin disorder scattering.
