Installing Microsoft Expression Web
Is anyone using MS Expression Web designer? If so, how do you install it?
It doesn't come with a normal MSI and the setup program doesn't accept any of the switches I'd expect to run silently.
We want to get it out as soon as we can but I'm not going to send people out to hundreds of machines to run setup!!

WTF are MS thinking of? Releasing an app in this day and age without any msi or other deployment method.
Not happy. Will try to create an msi using WinInstall LE.

They're at it again! Expression Web requires .net Framework 3.5. But there's no msi for that either!!!!

I can see a pattern forming here...
.net Framework 3.5. requires Windows Installer 3.1, and guess what... there's no msi for it. I know that WSUS makes this update mandatory.
It's becoming clear that MS are reducing support for for msi's.
I didn't know it was possible to deploy apps like this with WSUS. I don't have WSUS working at the moment. I'll have to fix it.
In the meantime I'll just install Expression Web manually. I have to get it done this week and don't have time for WSUS at the mo.

An msi would imply you have the windows installer already installed - catch22!?

XP comes with an earlier version of Windows Installer built in, so I thought it should be possible to deploy by msi, but this requires v3.1, which has to installed either manually, by script or WSUS. (I think WSUS needs v3.1, so it installs that before anything else on clients).

I wonder if the lack of MSI is due to the fact that its not aimed at corperate world perhaps? I know that schools want it to replace FrontPage and better it but they won't envisage it to be in the corperate world i would think myself, they would expect SharePoint Designer to be in the corperate world.
