    Have you had a look over at appdeploy?

    CorelDraw I think is similar to CS3/4... XML files...

    I didnt even think about appdeploy. Thanks for that!

    Ill give it a go.

    I was thinking maybe building a script to pull down a quiet install on logon.


    I'll post back with results

    You can still install applications via scripts etc at bootup, just put them in the startup scripts area and make sure you increase the timeout period for scripts (10 minutes by default)

    if you still having problems

    i tried many ways of deploying this

    loads of install repackers, watchers, mst files no luck

    dont waste your time

    just a script or send a command line down to the computers if you have the correct tool

    I also failed to get this to package and deploy via MSI, I ended up creating a silent install so all I do is connect to the share double click the exe and it installes. This way could be scripted as well but as it's only in one room I didn't bother.

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread - do you remember how you created the silent installer?

    http://www.corel.com/support/deploym...ment-guide.pdf Creating a server image part basically makes your silent install. We never got it to deploy correctly, so we do as cookie_monster and install from a share.
