Hi,
Has anyone managed to transform/package the Citrix ICA Client 10.1? Wise Install Tailor refuses to open the vendor MSI. With a bit of hunting around I found that Symantec/Altiris have come up with a hotfix for WPS 7 to sort issue but 7 is not available to me.

Thanks to Priapus I tried an admin install which lets me tailor the install but it only seems to work if ‘create uncompressed files’ is selected. I really want the MSI to contain internally compressed files.

Any bright ideas guys?
Charlie

Sorry didn't see that you didn't use WPS 7.x

This link may be of help regarding getting property values from the dialog

It is, but if you run an /a install you have the choice of uncompressed, internal or external - only the uncompressed option seems to work.

That debug thing is crazy, not too sure how its going to help... looking at it atm.

Sorry for the dumb question but if you want it to be internally, why create an admin install?

Because it's the easyest way to talior the install. Try it and see http://www.citrix.com/English/SS/downloads/details.asp?dID=2755&downloadID=679581&pID=186.

So if I understand you correct you want to, select the "Uncompressed" option as you're gonna modify some files, right?
If not you don't have to uncompress.
What is gonna happen when you run the wizard during admin install is that it's gonna replace files (the cab files in the Cabs table).
Nothing else seems to be changed what I can see.

I agree – the MSI stays the same bar the media table, MSITran confirmed this. However when I install the admin version my changes are reflected on the destination machine.

It looks like appsrv.ini contains at least some of the install prefs. What’s puzzling me is the appsrv.ini on the AIP, for example contains the following lines;
PNQuickLaunchEnabled=yes
PNQuickLaunchVisible=yes

However, the appsrv.ini on the destination machine contains the lines;
PNQuickLaunchEnabled=no
PNQuickLaunchVisible=yes

Surly I’m missing something, either that or there’s witchcraft at work.

[Also creating an admin install with compressed files just doesn’t work!]

I only tested creating an admin install compressed inside and had now issues, thus didn't try to install if afterwards.
So is it that you can't create the admin install or install if after you've modified it using the wizard?

I can only install it after I have modifiyed using the wizard if i choose 'uncompressed'. Choosing the compressed option jsut creates cabs that are 1kb each.

Then try on another machine as my (updated) CABs (3 once) do contain alot of files which would make the size more then 1kb. Didn't look at the size of them though, can verify that later on today when I get home but don't think that was an issue for me.

Thanks for all your help on this. We changed the dialog controls, some properties and feature install level with a table editor in the end.

I'm still not convinced that an admin install of ICA does what it says on the tin!
