Abacus Evolve $%^**(&()**) and some other rude words
We had a good laugh reading the manual for AE IP, noting "Must not be installed on a critical server, for example one running SIMS".
Anyway I've been handed the full suite of this software. The resources are no problem, each being shipped with their own MSI so it's just IP and ITR to give me a headache.
I have a nice little MS virtual server for this one. All the different IP and ITR packages are installed, and now I'm on the client deployment stage.
IP has a nice lil MSI which seems to be suitable for deployment. ITR however doesn't appear so helpful with its "Client Install.exe"
This exe seems to extract an ITR client MSI, an IS Script 10.5 MSI and an Easiteach MSI. The IS MSI unsurprisingly appears to be an original one, so is happy installing silently. However the ITR one and Easiteach one just return errors which usually imply "we don't want you to do this, run the exe".
Installing Easiteach from it's own original MSI works, but doesn't license it.
I've tried running "client install.exe" with just about every msiexec parameter there is (you can pass parameters with a /v), but without fail the Easiteach GUI comes up.
How did you guys get around this?
Need to modify permissions?
I've installed Abacus Evolve to one of our networked PCs, using the standalone install for the planner and the multi-user local install for the Resources. (I daren't put it on our one very critical server!).
Planner works fine. In administrator login, I can call the Resources from the Planner. In ordinary user mode, I can't - I get an error message saying that access restrictions are in place and to contact the system administrator. This is usually a permissions thing, but I am changing the permissions on the ITR folder and not getting anywhere.
Anyone had to do this and can point me in the right direction? Or have I done the install incorrectly???
