    Re: deploying software

    We are using GPO-based software deployment. I've heard special software can make it easier, probably. Sometimes scripting pushes on me hard. But… As to start wiyh, I can recommend reading this article. It doesn't go very deep in topic but rather draws some schematic view of it. Talking about non-windows istaller applications, I would recommend reading this article that shows how to use zap files. That's said I can't say that using zap files is a reliable solution. And about deployment in general, what I use myself and which problems I am experiencing with that I've already written in this topic.

    @ChrisPal: Have you looked at WPKG? Handy for those non-msi based installs. If you are handy with InstallShield /s /r parameters and a bit of AutoIt, you should be able to take on anything!

    Installation packages and deploying



    I know that most software included a MSI file to allow deploying applications, however some manufacturer only included a setup.exe to install the software.



    Two questions



    1. How to ensure that that the MSI is working without flooding the whole network with useless information

    2. I know that EMCO will build a MSI from scratch and it does work! are there any other utilities/software?
