    Insatll Quicktime only across a network

    We have a server 2003/xp network. waht i want to do is deploy through GPO the latest version of Quicktime. I know it comes with iTunes but i only want to deploy quictime.

    Does quicktime come with a .msi package for deployment?
    Can this be done or has any one done it?

    Please advise me....!

    I thoughti had read on the forum somewhere about this but i cannot find it now from a search.

    You can extract it from the itunes installation or download it direct from apple.

    It isn't an MSI though - the /S switch does work though so you can stick it in a startup script.

    See www.appdeploy.com for more info.

    You can download the Quicktime standalone exe from here :
    http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/standalone.html

    1. Run "QuickTimeInstaller.exe /a" and the GUI will allow you to pick your Network Distribution Point you also need to get the ISScript11.msi from your temp dir and copy it into the same folder as the quicktime.msi.
    2. Set a GPO to install using the msi and add the command parameter issetupdriven=1
    3. Link the ISScript11.msi and QuickTime.msi in the GPO you created. They need to be installed in that order.

    There's quite a bit of info here about it too if that doesn't work

    Hope it helps.

    Re: Insatll Quicktime only across a network

    Unfortunately the latest version seems to take all other info and cr*p on it from a great height.

    I can't find the ISScript11.msi for starters and using the /a switch just provides me with a "helpful" screen telling me I should use the /a switch or a bunch of others... circle of hell begins here.

    In short, I'm not having a particularly fun experience with this lot today... :?

    Just as a heads up.. the latest version of quicktime does indeed do things very differently as shown here:

    http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboar...=1&key=&#20457

    There's no longer a need for the ISScript11.msi nor is it available in the new version... In addition the /a switch doesn't work even though the UI does list it which just plain fubar'd me for hours.

    Just one last note... the solution suggested here:
    http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboar...mpage=1&key=&#

    ... does work although it obviously requires more finessing to remove the tray icon, etc...
