Hi first of all may I welcome you to edugeek
OK yes its a known problem go here
2nd one down is what you want serialization hot fix
Does anyone have any ideas for this little problem,
Our main IT Suites all have Macromedia Studio MX 2004 is installed. As part of the image MM studio is also registered and activiated using our site licence.
The problem comes when a student logs in it asks them for the serial nmber of the product.
Does any one have any ideas on how to make registration machine based rather than user based,
I think thats the one you were on about even though you posted the search results.
I have exactly the same problem, will try the fix out.
the answer is only half the problem, its how You get there thats the other half
Is there any way this can be deployed by GPO and if so how?
The way i do it is to put the serial number in the registry under the Flash section then run flash and it works fine.
No I just use the MSI as a wrapper. All attempts at making a native MSI in the past have ended up with problems. This is from several people as well.
I have a flash tutorial I made showing how to extract dreamweaver and create a silent installer but the link on here is to my old web space so I will dig it out tonight if anyone is interested.
The wrapper is the easy bit, its just a program with a few screens. For it to work the setup you point is at must support a silent installation eg setup /s etc.
All the Studio MX files are Install shield files. These files do not allow you to just use the /s switch. You first need to run the installation with the record option to produce an answer file accoring to the options you select. You then put this file at the same location as the setup file and you can use the /s option.
I then put these into a modified 7 zip self extracting that kicks of the installation.
You can ommit this step when using the wrapper wizard. Somebody did post a program that lets you create a silent installer this way but last time I tried it I dint have much luck and did it manually.
If only i knew how............................!You cannot repackage it but you can create silent installers and use the windows installer wrapper wizard.
Think I need to the flash step by step tutorial and a pre requisite of what software you are using to do it etc.
