    Unity Web Player

    Has anyone managed to install the Unity Web Player add-on? We want to install it to use Pora Ora : The Online 3D Educational Game for Children, but the add-on doesn't install properly. First problem was that it wants to install to the user's local profile, but the /allusers switch sorted that; the add-on installs (or at least is listed in Add-On Manager) but the page spits up an error. It installs fine into Chrome, Firefox and Safari though!

    I've had it successfully deployed to a few workrooms here as an .msi through group policy. I can't remember how I got the MSI out though, nor can I find the guide, so having a play now.

    One thing I did remember was this command:
    \\<path to file>\UnityWebPlayer.exe /S /AllUsers
    which is meant to be a silent install for all users.

    Edit: I can't for the life of me figure out or remember how I got the msi out of the exe. If you want to do it that way, I could stick the msi somewhere for you to use if you want though.

    Yes please. Host it if you can, or I can give you my email address. Thanks very much.

    I've only just got round to doing something with this, so wanted to say thanks, the MSI works a treat. That said, the MSI isn't available on that link any more, but fortunately I'd downloaded it at the time you posted it.

    Damn Rapidshare!

    I've rehosted it on SendSpace - maybe that will stay up longer.
    Download Unity Web Player.msi from Sendspace.com - send big files the easy way

    It's on our fileserver here anyway, so if anyone needs it and that link goes dead, PM me and I'll re-host it again!

    Just to bump with a new link in case anyone else is looking for this:
    https://www.box.com/s/kwz0x1d4jpw0jdgmdytz
    I created an account with that site, so hopefully that means the file will stay there now and not die like all the others

    Hi all,

    I don't suppose any of you have the .MSI package for Unity it's self do you (I know this thread is related to the web player but shhh)? IT Teacher wants to see if it can be beneficial to her and I can't find an .MSI anywhere!

    EDIT: I have got it installed, but now it's not connecting to their license server, anyone else had this? It tries to connect for about 5/10seconds then fails and closes Unity.
