Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 - How to deploy the rollups?
Has anyone attempted to package this application? I would like to install this application using the msi and not the setupclient.exe file. And also, would like to install the rollups silently without using their executables.
I have managed to extract the pre-requisites and install them manually before the main msi is installed.
I have then managed to remove a line from the "LaunchCondition" table.
"Installed OR ALLOWRUN OR PATCH OR MSIPATCHREMOVE - You have to run SetupClient.exe to install [ProductName]."
This allows me to then install the msi directly and without using the setupclient.exe. This is all fine and means I can install the main program silently using the msi with my own custom transform.
However, the issue arises when I then want to install the Rollups. These are provided in executable format and when I extract the files from the EXE I find that there is an msp present. If I try to install the msp directly from the command line using msiexec /p ...... it spits out an error message saying "To Install the Update, you must run CrmUpdateWrapper.exe".
How do I get around this? Do I have to use the crmupdatewrapper to install the rollups? Has anyone managed to package this application and not just install it from the command line using silent switches?
