Hi all,

Just finishing off this package, and I have realised that it is not copying across all the files need. Basically I need 2 sets of INI files to be copied to the user and also copied to the C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Application Data\ICA Client folder.

At the moment all it is doing is copying in to the folder of the account that install the software.

Any ideas?

After doing some testing, I have the MSI set on per-machine basis. So the ALLUSER is set to 1..correct!

So when the administrator login and runs the software the ICA Client folder will install under the Application Data area in the Documents and Settings.

Is there a way I can get the file and folder I want to install under the Administrator folder c:\documents and settings\administrator\application data\ica client

does the installing account have elevated perms to access the admin profile? Ideally you would have self-healing take care of this either through an advertised shortcut or other suitable entrypoint, or through active setup to copy said files to each profile on login. But if all you want to do is make sure the files are both in the installing profile & the admin profile, you will need an installing profile with the elevated permissions. Then again, you can try copying to the ALLUSERS profile and see if it is picked up.

(*i recommend using self-healing*).

If you wanted to do that you just need to add the file to locations, profile\All Users\app data and profile\app data etc.
If anyone other than administrator logs in, they wont have the ini file. Im pretty sure the the ICA Client uses the ini file in the logged in users profile, not All Users.
I'd listen to Kiptek, and use self healing.

What is the best way to do this through the healing process. I have two shortcuts that will be getting used in the application. How do I incorpate the files to be added through the healing process.
