    Installing Smart Notebook 10

    I've just had to install Smart Notebook 10 on some pupil laptops and I just did a quick mod to my previous 9.7 install

    Code:
    <install cmd='msiexec /i "%PACKAGES%\smart10\SMART Notebook.msi" DISABLE_LOGGING=1 NOTEBOOK_ONLY=1 /qb!' />
    but I'd forgotton that Smart10 needs a licence key.

    Is there a quick way of adding it in afterwards (or in fact - how do I get it in via script at all without having to get into msts or anything complicated! )

    Use the Smart Install Manager.

    Use the Smart Install Manager.
    Doesn't sound quick

    I found references to ISX_SERIALNUM properties in the manual which implies I can just add something to the msiexec parameters but can't see any examples of the syntax

    msiexec /i "[Path]\SMART Notebook.msi" INSTALL_NOTEBOOK=1
    NB_PROD_KEY=[22-character product key] ACTIVATE_LICENSE=1 /q

    I think this is the syntax but ive not tested.

    Agreed, the Install Manager is the best way of customising the install and only takes a few mins.

    @SimpleSi the manager will make an MST answer file then you add that when you set your MSI to deploy by group policy.

    @andyrite and zak (and sparkeh)
    You were right - Install Manager was the tool for the job.
    I ended up with
    Code:
    <install cmd='msiexec /i "%PACKAGES%\smart10\SMART Notebook.msi" transforms="%PACKAGES%\smart10\midpupil.mst" /qb!' />
    and it did it
    Smart10 with gallery installed and activated

    Takes about 45 mins/computer on my 11Mbs/10-BaseT network but that's another story

    Ta again

    This might be the deployment that lets me get a 1GBit central switch
