Hello,

Does anyone know why a package will install to a PC, but not show on the menu? Another package (both are McKesson Health Care apps) will install and appear on the menu, but not if another person logs on to the machine...app still there, just no menu choice. I'm using the Windows Installer that comes on W2K Pro (Veritas).

Thanks!

GLB

You're doing per machine installations. Try ALLUSERS=1 or ALLUSERS=2

Or more to the point, you are doing user installations when it sounds like you want a machine installation (ALLUSERS=1).

Thanks for the quick replies...now I'll show my ignorance: Where do I find this hack? I built the package point/click, and when I go through the "Registration Entries file" I see nothing about ALLUSERS.

Thanks again,

It's a public property which you can set on the command line (ALLUSERS=1) or hard-code within the property table.

It must be uppercase because it's public.

Would that be found in the Registration Entries file that was created along with the .msi?

Thanks,

It's actualy incorperated in the msi.

You need an msi editor to get it in (wise, installshield, orca...). You created an msi, so you probably have one. Otherwise get the microsoft platform sdk and install orca from the bin directory).

Open the msi in the editor and find the table called "property" and add a property ALLUSERS (notice the casing) and assign it a value of 1
