I repackaged this app about a year ago but without SP1 (guess it wasn't around then) - would have tried to transform the vendor MSI first but must have given up as I ended up snapping the install.

So I'd snap the install including SP1 if I were you.. Deployed via AD no problem - had to add a custom action to run the INSTALL.BAT (which sets up the virtual NIC) at the end of the install - it's not ideal but I couldn't get around this crappy MS batch file [:'(]

Also, had to add a reboot to get it working in our locked down environment - otherwise I was getting errors about the monitor driver - but you may not have that problem.

Hope this helps,
