    Installing Serif WebPlus onto CC4 network.

    Grrr...starting to drive me up the wall now.

    Getting nowhere with this. Have tried using the install for CC3 networks (run it on the server, then import via the RMMC) and this has worked for over Serif programs fine. Not so for Webplus though...error in the event log points to a missing file 'patch1.cab' which I can't find anywhere. Had a suggestion to try using the file 'netcopy.exe' to install it on the server and then import it from the RMMC...but via this method I don't see any CC3 or CC4 metadata files that allow importing.

    Any RM bods out there who could help?

    What version of WebPlus is it? You sure its not just a dodgey disc? I didnt have any problems doing the way you've tried installing X4.

    Its version X5, pretty sure its not a dodgey disc as installing it locally to a machine seems fine. Boo.

    Give Serif a call and ask if they have any CC4 packages available for it?

    Finally got it sorted with help from a chap on RM Communities

    In case anyone is interested or has the same problem/issue. I had to use the netcopy installer instead of the RM CC3 one, and then create my own CC3.ini file and place it into the package folder so it can be imported into the RMMC for allocation. The ini file contains the following :
    [Package]
    Description=Serif WebPlus X5
    OS=5.WS
    WIPackage=SERIF WEBPLUS X5.MSI

    @gmj:

    Wish I had seen this post when first put out but missed it, I had the very same problem but solved it by just manually copying the patch1.cab off the disc and into the already created package and then imported via the RMMC as CC3 package worked like a charm.

    Pleased you got sorted though

    The WebPlus 13.0.1 cd was broken for RM. Call Serif support to get sent a new one.
