Installing Sherston Software the easy way
We have quite a few software titles from sherston and even with the msi i created to install the software i would get issues with the software not installing properly or it would stop other software titles installing via install shield.
what i did to stop these problems was to create a share on one of the servers that staff and pupils can access and copy the sherston application folder from a local pc into this share. Once it has finished copying the data over i go to the application folder and open the sherston.ini and i just edit the following two lines under [PC].
Savepath= change this to the shared folder you want to have the programs saves eg \\Server\apps\Sherston\Saves\Bamboozled\saves
Datapath= Change this the the shared folder you have the program exe located in eg \\Server\Sherston\Bamboozled\appdata
Then i just placed the exe shortcut on the desktop.
the following software titles have been tested and i have not had any problems so far.
