You can get the exe file from here:
I have not looked at extracting the MSI yet.
How do people roll this out in their school? Is it easy enough to package up or does it have to be a local job?
we just use the flashplayer, saves drm confusion
and runs that. The msi's file name is random.
I've deployed it to a test machine and it installs.
I can't download programmes with the iPlayer though. I can play them on the website, but not download them.
My Smoothwall doesn't report any problems, either in the firewall or proxy server logs. It could be our upstream proxy.Code:Sorry Download Manager cannot connect to the server...
Does anyone have any ideas?
Right chaps, here's an update...
My second attempt at creating an MSI for this worked. It now installs spot on and does every thing that I want. Apart from remove itself. Uninstall fails but I'm not so worried about this.
Hub + Wireshark and sniff the connection?
I'd also have to trial it on a real machine, as opposed to the VM I had been using.
@kerrymoralee9280 - have you tried the vendor-supplied msi (see my post about 3 minutes before yours), rather than creating your own?
Well, you either need a hub because it transmits all packets to all ports. Or you can use a managed switch that will allow you to set a monitor port. I know my procurves can do this.
Alternatively you could just run wireshark on the machine with iplayer, although performance might go down the toilet.
As I suspected, our LA ISP are blocking the bittorrrent peer-to-peer networking it was using. They're not going to unblock it either.
I can understand their reasoning so I'm not going to pursue it any further.
can the uninstallation problem be due to repository files being left in the msi?
or maybe some registery keys need to be removed or something
but you don't care so i guess it doesn't matter!! Just doing this for my sake really :P
