Hi Guys,

Problem: Lotus 123 & WordPro, reason it is split into Machine and User Parts,

Can I get an MSI to install the Machine based part then "Fix" the user part when they login as the User Part is installing to their Network Drive! [:-] Currently the MSI fails as it can't find the Network drive.

We got around this previously as it was done using WinInstall with the package split into 2 parts. I want to cut down on the Engineer work required by having one MSI that does it all [:D]

Cheers

The normal way to do this is to use the "AppDataFolder" property.

Assuming you have roaming profiles, I'm quite sure this folder should "roam" by default. Although many companies choose to redirect this folder to the network.

Hi,

Tried using the APPDATA property but the MSI fails because the network drive is missing.

What I need is for the MSI to hit the target PC. Then repair when a user logs in to copy the missing files onto the users home network drive.

It only needs to do this once for new users that do not have the appropriate application files on their home drive.

Any other ideas?

Cheers

Which account are you using to install the MSI?

This account obviously has a redirected profile, but isn't "fully" (interactively) logged-on (drives connected, etc.) at the time.

How have you achieved the folder redirection (group policy)?
