I have been researching deploying BlackBerry Desktopv6.1.0 through Group Policy.

I usually create an msi then deploy as a software package with Group Policy, but I have found as a prerequisite, that you need to install Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) first. I have also found that you have to run the package with the following command USING_EXUIH=1.

I could run it from a script like msiexec /i vc_red.msi USING_EXUIH=1 /qn, and then deploy with Group Policy, but would this then not run every time the computers start?

Is there any other way of installing Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) so it only installs the once or it only installs if it is found not to be already installed?

you could put the required property into an MST and then add it to the GPO by using the 'Advanced' deployment type and going to the 'Modifications' tab. Or really, since it's a public property, you could probably be forgiven for just adding it to/setting it in the original MSI and then deploying that...

Thanks, which table would I need to add it to in the MSI?

Property table, first check if it's already there, if so, set it to 1, if not, add it first.

Ok, just to confirm I am doing this correctly, under the property table, I set the property to USING_EXUIH and the value to 1?

Is that right?
