Ok, under bad advice from our vender i deployed their application and isscript9.msi

Only later did i find out that deploying isscrip causes issues.

My goal is to just fix it so i can install programs localy again. I dont care about deploying at this point ... i just want to get it so my users can install a program off a cd again without having the installer die!

Anyone know how to fix this? i have found ways to wrapp the MSI file so i can push software, but not how fix the problem.

basically you have to delete any reference to the isscript9 from the registry before running any installer that requires a different isscript. Overall you either deploy all the isscript.msi or none since they all use the same product code.

here is the script i used when I needed to install an app using isscript8 after isscript11 was pushed through another app.

' Script to Write a Change to the Registry
Option Explicit
'Define the variables to use.
Dim oWshShell
Set oWshShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")

oWshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\025CE097CCCC01840AEF60613302C44E"

oWshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Features\025CE097CCCC01840AEF60613302C44E"

oWshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy\AppMgmt\{c0ae5c04-ab64-4780-948c-1dd3e119b118}" find deployment name isscript

oWshShell.RegDelete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Management\ARPCache\{790EC520-CCCC-4810-A0FE-061633204CE4}"

oWshShell.RegDelete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\20C9DCECABEF30E4198B12C87580E962"contains isscipt11

I now have all the isscripts pushed through gpo 6-1150 and anything using isscript will install.
