    Installing GoogleSketchup 6 via startup script

    Hi,

    having problems installing this using a startup script, through a silent install. I have given Domain computers full control on both the batch script, and on the Setup.exe and setup.iss files, but so far no joy.

    My script runs fine when logged on as a local admin, on a workstation, but fails to run at startup. I can post my script should anyone want to help me, please!!!

    @ECHO OFF
    ECHO Installing SketchUp
    "\\resources\packages\DEPARTMENTAL\TECHNOLOGY\gske tch6NEW\GoogleSketchUpWEN.exe" /a /s /sms /f1"\\resources\packages\DEPARTMENTAL\TECHNOLOGY\gs ketch6NEW\setup.iss"
    exit


    Thanks for looking,
    Mark

    add a

    Code:
    /f2c:\windows\temp\setup.log
    to the command - this will let it write a results file and you can see more about why it's failing.

    You don't need (and really don't want!) full control for "domain computers" - just read is fine.

    found out it was my dodgy local vmware machine cocking it up.
    Managed to use a COPY script instead, which worked fine. The program worked okay as well, with locked down accounts.

    Cheers anyway

    We just run it off a server share - seems fine even with ~30 kids using it at a time
