    Deploy Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 By Group Policy

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone has a guide or an idea to install Corel Paint Shop Pro X2 by group policy? I have the MSI installer but how do i input the serial number?

    I phoned Corel they want to charge something like £150 for a support call. I don't fancy paying that in all honesty.

    Thank You

    Last time I tried this there was an admin installer pack as part of the CD kit and that allowed you to make a customised installer. Have they discontinued this?

    Can't remember fully it was now about 3 years since I had to do one but it was a separate CD as it was part of the Corel Licence for Learning and allowed you to customise and deploy stuff. They may have changed it all now though

    Have you tried doing an administrative install by launching the MSI via msiexec /a?

    You need to run it like this:

    msiexec /a "K:\Corel Paint Shop Pro Photo\psppx2.msi"

    I used this, AppDeploy > Package Knowledgebase > Paint Shop Pro when when i was setting up deployment using MDT. (which i used sucessfully for PSPX and PSPX3)
    if that doesn't work - you can always try this - Downloads - MSI Package Builder - its a 30 day trial but it can still build MSI's.

    EDIT: Quiet install command,

    \\SERVER\SHARE\distribution\Applications\Corel Paintshop Photo Pro X3 1.3\setup.exe /QB! SERIALNUMBER="XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX"

    ok what i fool

    just found something out. I can use the below code to install it with a batch file

    Code:
    msiexec /i aip\psppx2.msi Serialnumber=XXXXXXX-XXXXXXX-XXX /qb
    is there a way i could possibly add these options through the standard windows installers stuff in group policy. How would i add these extra options please?

    Thanks

    Looks like i have managed it

    To create a server image
    1 Insert the installation disc into the DVD drive.
    If the AutoRun screen opens, click Exit.
    2 On the Windows® taskbar, click Start �� Run.
    3 Type the following command line, where X: is the DVD drive.
    X:\Setup.exe /a
    4 Type your user name and serial number (with or without hyphens) in
    the boxes provided, and then click Next.
    The customer information that you provide is passed on to the
    workstations when the software is deployed to the network. By
    default, users can change the user name but not the serial number.
    5 Specify a network location for the server image. To change the default
    location, type a valid server path in the Network location box, or
    click Browse to browse to a valid network location.
    6 If you want to allow workstations to detect and download product
    updates, enable the Product updates check box.
    7 Click Install to begin copying the files to the server.
    If you click Cancel, you are prompted whether to cancel creating the
    server image. Cancelling “rolls back” the setup and undoes most of
    the changes made; however, some manual clean-up may be required.
    8 Click Finish.
    9 Check for software updates, and apply them to the server

    Thanks to all that posted
