I just got a request, to deploy Sage Accpac 5.5 and I was wondering what is the best way to deploy this piece of software?. I checked the Package KB section and didn't see it listed.

Is it possible to snapshot /repackage this software for deployment?, or is there a way to do a silent install?.

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

I've done 3 or 4 Sage apps and they were all MSI-based so usual MSI "rules" apply.

Thank you.

I just got the request today, I was very concerned about it, as I never have deployed Sage Accpac 5.5 before only as part of the image. I have another question if you don't mind.

Do you of any issues with running Accpac 5.5 under Windows 7 x64?

I am an Accpac expert. There is no silent installer. Run ..\Programs\Wssetup\Setup.Exe as an administrator, and follow the prompts. Note that the G/L Financial reporter uses an Excel Add-in that is not compatible with 64-bit Office. But a 64-but OS is OK.

So there is no way to deploy Accpac with 0 touch?

Speaking from experience with Sage Account 50, Sage are pretty stupid regarding their install package. Not that sure about Accpac but do you know if it is a installshield install program? If so have you tried creating a response file and using that?
