    Hi,

    This is more a "Has anyone got...?"

    I am after an Audacity msi.

    Does any one have one or shed on any light on how they have networked installed this.

    You can copy the program files to a share and run it from there but i am against this.

    I use the standard. exe and instal using a startup script. (batch file)

    Code:
    if exist "C:\Program Files\Audacity" goto :eof ELSE
    @echo off
    \\server\share\audacity-win-1.2.6.exe /silent

    I made my own MSI from scratch using Advanced Installer, but I can't distribute it due to some third party codecs it includes.

    I could strip those out and produce a bare-bones MSI, but I would appreciate if anyone can let me know what the legal issues are with redistributing binary installers of GPL software. Do I need to release the source for the installer, for example? Does the installer need to actually display the GPL, or create a shortcut to it, or can I simply bundle the GPL text with the install files?

    HI

    Try installing it on a server and running it remotely or put the portable version on the server and run that remotely.

    Are you referring to LAME/FFmpeg and the MP3 licensing fee?

    From the GPL FAQ.

    Can software installers ask people to click to agree to the GPL? If I get some software under the GPL, do I have to agree to anything?
    Some software packaging systems have a place which requires you to click through or otherwise indicate assent to the terms of the GPL. This is neither required nor forbidden. With or without a click through, the GPL's rules remain the same.

    Merely agreeing to the GPL doesn't place any obligations on you. You are not required to agree to anything to merely use software which is licensed under the GPL. You only have obligations if you modify or distribute the software. If it really bothers you to click through the GPL, nothing stops you from hacking the GPLed software to bypass this.
    I would like to bundle GPLed software with some sort of installation software. Does that installer need to have a GPL-compatible license?
    No. The installer and the files it installs are separate works. As a result, the terms of the GPL do not apply to the installation software.
