    Lightbulb ClickView Player ADM and ADMX templates

    Recently I was installing the ClickView Player trial for one of my schools and was struck by the lack of centralized configuration for the player software. In fairness there is really only one required setting which is the server which you can easily initially setup by adding an A record to DNS pointing "clickview" to the appropriate IP address. Their advice was simply to change the server name then change it back which is fine if you have nothing else on it. Also this method does not account for changing the server and as the installer does not clean up its registry keys on uninstall a redeploy is out of the question. After fighting with the MSI to try and make a transform I decided that it would be much simpler to make an ADM/ADMX template to specify it. This also make changing the server trivial.

    As this key is not in the managed area of the registry you must remove filtering for it to show on older Windows XP/2003 setups. To do this go to the view menu and click filtering, then untick "Only show policy setting that can be fully managed"

    As the key is part of the machine registry hive the setting is simply under a ClickView folder under Administrative Templates inside computer configuration. You just need to specify the server in the same policy that you use to push the software and it all works.

    I'd also created one for the player - but to enable/disable various school bag options:

    Code:
    CLASS MACHINE
    
    CATEGORY "Clickview Custom Settings"
    
       POLICY "Allow Local School Bag"
    
          KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\ClickView\ClickView"
          VALUENAME "AllowLocalSchoolBag"
          VALUEON NUMERIC 1
          VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
       END POLICY
    
       POLICY "Allow My Computer School Bag"
    
          KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\ClickView\ClickView"
          VALUENAME "AllowMyComputerSchoolBag"
          VALUEON NUMERIC 1
          VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
       END POLICY
    
       POLICY "Allow RemovableSchool Bag"
    
          KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\ClickView\ClickView"
          VALUENAME "AllowRemovableSchoolBag"
          VALUEON NUMERIC 1
          VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
       END POLICY
    
       POLICY "Allow School Bag"
    
          KEYNAME "SOFTWARE\ClickView\ClickView"
          VALUENAME "AllowSchoolBag"
          VALUEON NUMERIC 1
          VALUEOFF NUMERIC 0
       END POLICY
    END CATEGORY;
