First of all, thanks. I have been visiting this forum for a year or so, finding tips and tricks to help me along. Second, I apologize, for not contributing to the group, just taking the info that I needed. [8|]

At any rate, I use On Technologies' (Symantec's) CCM product for distribution, Scriptlogic along with homeade Kix and regular batch files for scripting, and CCM's dev tool, and Installshield for packaging when I need it.

We are just finishing up a 1400 seat 2000 rollout, and have close to 200 apps "scripted" with CCM. I have gotten pretty good with the CCM product, but I need some other "tools". My knowlege with MSI, and repackaging in general however is lacking. I have several books, but no time to really read them. Does anyone offer a class on repackaging? Besides each vendor's classes of their own suites? Or would that be the best place to start? I have just gotten tired of some vendor's classes (mostly MS) where the majority of the material is stuff that any network person should know , even when that are supposed to be "advanced"

Any advice is appreciated.

Darwin Sannoy ( has excellent classes to get people up to speed but I don't think anyone truely offers an advanced course at this time. I know Darwin was thinking of compiling one but I don't see an offering as of yet.
