Hello All,
I am trying to create a .msi file for SPSS version 12.0. My company's old server for SPSS is expiring soon and we'd like to get all of the users to point to our new server. The new server will require a new Environment variable. I have to create a .msi file to do a silent install via GPO and also have it update the old Environment Variable to the new environment variable. I am clueless as to where I should begin. I am using Advanced Installer Please help!!!

Start by having a look at http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=281

"The new server will require a new Environment variable"
Check the Extension table and see if the "server" env variable is already present.

Create a transform for the vendor MSI and add your changes to the MST.

Hello, thanks for such quick response! This is awesome! Create a transform for the vendor MSI and add your changes to the MST? I don't understand. Also, I see 3 .msi files on the cd. When I run it it says I need a iiscript.msi. Am I to transform that .msi with the spss.msi? I do have the iiscript.msi on the disc.

I havn't handled this application (yet) but you first need to make sure the ISScript.MSI is installed first.
Create a transform (.MST) for the spss.msi and add any required Property to the transform.

So you got ISScript.msi & spss.msi, what is the 3rd MSI?

Hi what exactly do you mean by transforming the .mst file for the .msi? I'm not at work so I'll have to wait til I get back to work to give you the name of the third .msi file.
Am I to install the Isscript .msi that i have on that machine prior to creating the transform for the msi?
