    Errr... Why?

    I though they build an MSI by default? Could be wrong because of the drivers and such.

    Not an MSI but silent install is documented here.

    Appdeploy is often a good site for finding install tips

    Version 4 is no longer an MSI, and version 3 is not a simple install.

    Why are you wanting to deploy Daemon tools out of interest?

    Could you not install Daemon Tools on a file server, share out the virtual optical drive then point shortcuts on workstations to this drive?

    Well what's the difference between a virtual optical drive on a workstation and one on a server?

    Rather hard to explain. Just try it. Find a Securom disc and try both ways.

    Daemon tool support the "encryption" method. Simply copying the contents of the CD doesn't copy the entire disc.

    Think of it this way. You copy the XP cd, you don't get the boot file do you. It's simliar but by no way the same.

    Even if you share the drive, it still can't access the Securom part. It's "hardware encryption". The whole point of it is to stop you doing that, or copying the disc.

    I understand what you're getting at, using the XP disc as an example. A direct CD copy does work in XP's case, but if you were creating a slipstream disc, you do need to provide the boot image file to make the disc bootable.

    I agree with you upto this point Still trying to get my head around why it couldn't be done server end. Using Daemon Tools on a workstation or server should behave the same, so surely it's irrelevant what copy protection (if any) is used. If the copy protection was a problem, you'd still have problems if Daemon Tools was installed locally.

    Well put it this way. I don't work.

    Daemon tool makes a virtual CD\DVD drive. So you can get around the protection
