HI All,

I am packaging the above application and am hitting an issue with it repairing for a user the first time it logs in. The application comes as an msi and after doing an admin install to extract the files I apply a response transform and add just client specific properties. I have tried adding "AND (NOT REINSTALL)" as suggested in a post here on Appdeploy however this has not stopped the problem. Has anyone else had/overcame this issue?

I install as an admin, reboot, log in as a user and start up for first time and it repairs. This is an issue because it is being delivered via CA UniCenter which creates a virtual drive, installs and then deletes the drive => no path back to the source.

Thanks in advance..

Is the source available if you use SOURCELIST property?

SOURCELIST=\\Server1\Share\Package;\\Server2\Share\Package

Unfortunately not! The drive is deleted after installation and as such the path back to the source is not available.

We could copy the package locally and install from there however I would prefer to avoid this option.

There are no user files in the application so it should not need to revert to source during a repair. I think there is something in the application forcing a reinstall when a new user logs in or something to that effect.
