    Deploying MSI in RM CC4 Network

    Hiya

    I`m in the process of deploying an MSI package on an RM CC4 network, and i`m having problems. Iv have tried packaging it as a CC3 package (with the .ini file) but it then wont install because its an MSI not an EXE. I have also tried getting it on the network using Application wizard but this doesnt seem to work correctly either (the package doesn't appear in the console)

    So my question is how would I package a MSI program for deployment on a CC4 network?

    Thanks

    You should be able to import it into console directly without the use of an ini file. Have the msi and accompanying files in a folder, on the RMMC go to FILE - IMPORT - PACKAGE - CC3 PACKAGE. Select "Any File" and point it at the msi. It should then import.

    I did that and I get an error return code 99, could this be the MSI? or is it a problem with the Console?

    How large is the msi? That is an old error which was fixed by SR1.

    right I got it to upload to the console, I found a way of doing with a INI file

    Iv now got the problem that by default the package installs a network client, and I want it to install just the full standalone version installed (which, is an option if you install it manually)

    I have had a look at editing the msi with ORCA but I cant find where it sets the default selection

    Does the package provider give a list of switches that can be used? What software is it?

    If you told us the name of the software we might be able to offer more specific help

    You could use a transform file along with the MSI which will tell the MSI which options to use.

    Hope this helps.
