    Thumbs up Logistix Update Packs

    Hello all,

    I've been busy creating various useful packages you can use within your deployment or if you're a system builder; on your master images.

    Logistix Post XP SP3 Update Pack (September)
    The Logistix Post XP SP3 Update Pack September edition will be the last combined Post XP SP3 updates + .NET Framework due to its large size. Next month, the October edition will just contain Post XP SP3 updates.

    Logistix Office 2007 Compatibility Pack
    The Logistix Office 2007 Compatibility Update Pack contains the Office 2007 Compatibility Pack, Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Post Hotfixes all in one convenient package.

    Logistix Microsoft .NET Framework Pack
    The Logistix Microsoft .NET Framework Pack contains the following all in one convenient package:

    .NET Framework 1.1 + SP1 + Updates
    .NET Framework 2.0 + SP2
    .NET Framework 3.0 + SP2
    .NET Framework 3.5 + SP1

    Logistix Plugins Pack
    The Logistix Plugins Pack contains the following all in one convenient package:

    Adobe Flash 9.0.124.0
    Adobe Shockwave 11.0.0.465
    Adobe Reader 9
    Java 6 Update 7

    I hope you find all these useful. Any suggestions for other packs would be welcome. You're also more than welcome to share links on other sites!

    Would a Quicktime alternative and Real alternative pack be useful? What about adding Microsoft Works compatibility? I often get pupils who can't open work at school because of this.

    They save a lot of time don't they? It's always the simple ideas which work best

    I'm afraid I don't. I wasn't aware there were any MSIs. You have two choices really - either using the Logistix .NET Framework Pack or use WSUS which can also distribute .NET.

    I done this..
    Deploying the .NET Framework 1.1 Using Active Directory (Windows 2000 Server)

    To extract the Dotnetfx.exe file to deploy the .NET Framework

    1. Download Dotnetfx.exe to the root directory of the C:\ drive on your local computer.
    2. Open a command prompt.
    3. Change the directory to the root of the C:\ drive.
    4. Type mkdir dotnetfx at the command prompt to create a directory in which to copy Dotnetfx.exe.
    5. Type dotnetfx.exe /q /c:"msiexec /qb /a netfx.msi TARGETDIR=c:\dotnetfx" at the command prompt to extract the files to the dotnetfx directory.
    6. Close the command prompt window.
    7. Navigate to the C:\dotnetfx folder in Windows Explorer and verify that the files were extracted.
    8. Move the dotnetfx folder and all its contents to the server that you will use for deployment.

    Works for all of them.. but .net 3.5 is HUGE! and takes ages to install and then needs a reboot, and takes ages to "configure"... and which point it failed for me... but it was surplus to requirements so I said sod it.

    Isn't there a timeout of 10 minutes to install MSIs by GPOs? On slower machines, .NET 3.5 would take longer than this for certain, which is why it may be failing.

    I always put the .NET Framework Pack on base images. Makes things so much easier and applications that require .NET will work by default.

    QuickTime Alternative 2.70
    Real Alternative 1.84

    @ICT_GUY - I had a look at including PowerToys, but unfortunately there doesn't appear to be any easy way of installing it silently. It doesn't use the normal Microsoft switches.
