    serif mst's

    Hi, does anyone know if mst's exist for the following?

    webplus 10
    pageplus x2
    drawplus x2
    photoplus 11
    movieplus 5

    I've had a quick google and searched on here but couldn't find anything, also looked on serif.

    Does anyone else use them on CC4, if so how did you package them?

    mst's?

    Serif do have MSI's that you can use. They are included on the disks from Serif. Haven't installed them on a CC4 network, but they have worked across our system perfectly.

    The .msi's are available from Serif (should be on the cds) and there's a tool to create pre-serialised admin install points on the cds as well.

    AFAIK there are no MST's for them. Which is really unfortunate as when doing a GPO install using the MSI it doesn't include the tutorials. We find this to be a major PITA

    It's really annoying, we need to install the resources to a shared location (disk space is tight). Anyone know how we can do this?

    We use the serif apps.

    Basically you have to do a network install, it asks you the install questions and generates the MSI's for you on the network share. These can then be used to install via a GPO and do in fact work quite well.

    Thats how I have allways done them, and allways install from them as its all preconfigured.

    Ah yes, now I remember. The previous network installation was done by another tech not me. I seem to remember it did ask me how to configure it. Hmm...it seems my HDD (brain) is corrupting information. Lol.

    How about making your own MST with a tool like InstallTailor.

    You`re right about that, but the previous version(s) is still available and useable.
