    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    I am Really Really sorry about this!!!! I wish I had it earlier this week to save people all this trouble.

    Would someone trial the beta AS2.5 MSI for me, I am looking for 3 sites prefably.

    We have also created an application to enter the serial number so you don't need to edit the as2pe.dat

    There is no MSI for the driver yet. Soon!!

    PM me.

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    I am away on a WinINSTALL course right now and during that I have learned a SHED load more about msi's and how they work. Should *hopefully* be able to get you guys a MSI that installs IIS engine and then installs Active Studio if anyone needs still. I currently use a WinINSTALL Nai to do it here and it works a treat. The joy of being able to execute external commands (e.g. when installing run setup.exe -S for silent say) that way the vendor MSI does all the work

    Dan, I don't get it... The driver I downloaded from the Promethean web site (ver 3.0.5) IS an MSI and I've deployed it fine. Still have to do the manual fix though. Can you tell me what you are changing in the 'new' MSIs?

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    Its to get rid of this message when double clicking on the msi. It will not be reliant on a setup.exe


    Plus it stops you guys/gals having to mess to get it to work. It will just work.

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    Cool. Does that mean it is no longer an InstallScript MSI and therefore does not need ISSCRIPT?

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    Yep, we have started from scratch with them all. To suit single and deployment mode. It will eventually be on the standard cd.

    The cc3 version has the extra writeaccess.ini to allow the voting and slate files to be written to and icon files so that the nice easy interface of system admin can be used to deploy it including Icons.

    Fair play guys.

    Its good when a company listens to its users

    ...now MS, please give out your software for free to the hardworking IT staff in education - on account of their willingness to use your software...... please?..... ah, dang it lol

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    Dan - I'd be interested in the MSI packages. I have 26 Promethean whiteboards in my care and it can get a bit tiring having to go round them to install the software and sort the license bit.

    Will this work with both serial and usb?

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    Due to the MS driver signing being imminent (Don't know when) we will not be doing an msi for the current driver.

    However I did one a while ago quite old but still works. Only Serial Im afraid. You still have to update the HID for USB.

    Re: Promethean Resources cd + MSI Install

    does anyone else have anymore information about deploying active studio silently

    i was able to deploy version 2.1.23 as a msi, i had to change the msi in orca a bit(cant remember what i did tho, should of saved it as a transform than changing the actual msi itself.)

    was able to do the same with resources 2.0.8 again altering the msi.

    the driver deployed straight away with no alterations but i need to test the new driver anyway. we also use TDS boards which need the boardmate driver that was repackaged with wininstall and worked fine.

    my only problem is now deploying the updates specificly ACTIVstudio_PE_v2.5.101_Update.exe i havent been able to find anyway to apply this patch other than manually.

    also i used WIWW and put on ISS 7,8,9,11 but dont have copies of 10 and 10.5
