    Notepad ++ MSI

    Does anybody have an MSI they have created for this? Just saves me some time creating it if somebody is kind enough to share!

    Thanks

    I used to use the capture method on XP but the software i used to use doesn't work on win 7 (i can remember the name) I've not had to make any in a while hence was hoping somebody might have one!

    As Notepad++ is portable, in the sense, that it could be run from a central share, you could install Notepad++ at one station copy the software install folder to a central share and then write a batch file to copy the software back to your other stations.

    You then will have an 'installed' working copy of Notepad++ at your workstations.

    Didn't realise that - TBH I havn't even looked - it was one of the Students who runs the Computer Club that asked for it.

    Will do that!

    Forgive me for jumping in. Did you find this out by trial and error, did you read about it elsewhere or is there some other way of determining this? The reason that I ask is that it might apply to other applications and I'd like to have a mechanism for finding out, if I need to.

    Try it and see is the usual way of doing it, another good indicator is when they provide you with a simple zip file version as a download option, so you can unzip and go (rather than just an installer).

    To be honest I can't remember how I first found this out. It may have been trial and error as you say.

    What is the application you have in mind?

    Perhaps it is already know to be portable or perhaps there is a portable version available for download.

    rather than having .MSI now we have our own virtual app environment thanks to Zenworks Application Virtualization, just import a program and it converts to an .exe like a portable app then just bung it on a share and create a shortcut for all users to access it, it also helps keep on top of updates as you just replace the .exe with the latest version - the apps also dont have to be installed on the local machines.
