I need to setup some Email signature files for every user who logs in

The locaion of those files in outlook are in Tools-->Options-->Mail Format-->Stationery and Fonts-->Email Signature.

We tried Active Setup in previous package but we decided to get rid of it as it is causing lot of issues in our environment.

Is there any other way how i can make it work for all users..Please pitch in any ideas, Your response is highly appreciated.

Thanks,

Raj.

Raj, what ver are you packaging?
I think in 2007 or 10 you can do this with the OCT, just edit the Microsoft Outlook user settings tab

My package is Signature2009. All i have in that package is just these two email signature files.

Can i do this with a vb script or something?

it is causing lot of issues in our environment. Like what?!? AS is in all probability the most widely-used mechanism for propogating CU settings which aren't/can't be triggered by a Windows Installer entry-point.

We had a package in our environment with AS. But it had huge problems, So they requested for repackage with out AS.
Any ideas how can we achieve this without AS please?

*ONE* package caused you problems so you want to abandon AS! Priceless. Have you watched IE being configured on a clean machine? How does that work? Can you guess?

If you want to do it without AS, I guess the log-in script is the next most obvious place but that will involve scripting and, to be frank - and please don't take offence - if you're put off AS because of one problem, I wouldn't be very confident about your ability to build bullet-proof scripts.

Thanks for your help. But just to clarify it wasn't my decision to abandon AS. It was taken by someone else all i can do is follow them not in a position to go against them.
No offense taken...You might have not reached to this position with out starting from somewhere so please stop doubting about other's ability that would be the most dumbest thing to do. Thanks

if you don't have an advertised entry point for your CU settings email sigs (as in making it part of the outlook package) then as Ian (VB) says then you gotta go with AS, logon script or (just a guess) GPO?

surely you're speaking metaphorically vb?
packagers are usually not the baseball bat (or in your case Cricket bat) wielding type

In our environment we used scripting to call a batch file that put new signature files into %appdata%\micrsoft\signatures.

First I setup Task one to Verify that the directory $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR) exists

 Then On Success Launch $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\NewSig.bat with params .

(i had a bit of help from a support tech with the setup of the kscript)

NewSig.bat

this places the signature file into %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Signatures, the .htm file. The other folder that is copied contains a picture,  2 .XML documents and a themedata.thmx file all files releated to the formatting of the signature.
