Have you lokoed at http://www.appdeploy.com/packages/detail.asp?id=162?

I would suggest putting some more information in your questions, as in you have tried repackaging and have encountered the following problems, log files could be handy, anything really.

Hope I've helped somewhat.

WisePackager04....this error your getting is happening when using the Package Validation tool?

Some ICE errors are not really worth worrying about in my opinion....so if its installing and running ok...Dont worry about that error.

The step by step instructions do not exist yet, the purpose of this site is to get all of us colaborating to develop solutions. We can't always just feed answers to you. I myself am still working on creating a transform for this, but I have still had no luck. I have moved on due to my work load, but when i revisit it, I will be sure to let you know if I find a solution.

When my users click on the palm desktop icon it ask them for there user name and they proceed from there to create a new palm user profile

You dont need to repackage or capture anything the application is already in msi format.

Has anyone managed to deploy this software to users who are do not have admin priviledges? The HKCU settings in this application are just brutal. Any help is appreciated.

A note for future reference. This method does NOT work for GPO deployment.

InstallShield with Isscript has a tendency to not be able to be deployed via GPO. This can be bypassed by using Orca to edit the original msi and remove the Unsupported Install Method custom action.

Sorry to bring back an old discussion, but I'm having trouble getting this to work using the instructions above. I'm deploying this with Altiris Deployment server, and tried to following two methods:

1) msiexec /i "\\gator\AppInstall\PalmDesktop4\ISScript8.Msi" /qn
msiexec /i "\\gator\AppInstall\PalmDesktop4\Palm Desktop.msi" /qn

2) "\\gator\AppInstall\PalmDesktop4\setup.exe" /s /v"/QB- ALLUSER=1"

In both cases, I see Product: ISScript -- Installation operation completed successfully. and Product: Palm Desktop -- Installation operation completed successfully in the registry of the client, and then a subsquent:
Windows cannot unload your registry file. If you have a roaming profile, your settings are not replicated. Contact your administrator.

It appears the program is installed, but no desktop icon or any reference to palm at all appears in documents and settings...

Any ideas? Has anyone deployed this with Altiris Deployment server or in a similar method without having to re-package the MSIs? I want them to be available to all users of the machine, and the users are not administrators (but the account installing the software is).

TIA!

Hey-
Just trying to start some activity here again...but has anyone done this successfully with Altiris Deployment Server? According to the post by hayabusa above, this shouldn't require any repacking, just executing two MSIs. I do that, but it doesn't quite work. Any help would be appreciated.

TIA!

I have the exact same issue as you ctjohnson (using Altiris as well). I install it from an account with administrator privs and it works for that account and that account only. Any other account cannot even see the shortcuts on the desktop or uninstall it from Add/Remove Programs. I'm going to try to customize the MSI as others have done but with 4.1.4E I think it may be a little more difficult.

I had created a custom MSI package with Altiris years ago for an older version of the software (v4.x) and it worked just fine. This newer one is quite horrible. If I cannot get it working I'll just stick to the older version + Chapura to sync Outlook... but I was hoping to get this going so that I can use the Documents to Go software that comes with the Tungsten E2's...

Any help would be appreciated!

i think the problem might be that ALLUSERS=1 is telling the installer that only install the package per-user and what you want to do is install it PER-MACHINE , so try it with ALLUSERS=2 switch. Correct me if i'm wrong ya bumbs! (just kidding[:'(])

justinSingh,

You don't think this thread is quite old?
Setting ALLUSERS=1 will do a per-machine as ALLUSERS=2 or not defined at all a per-user install, so who's the bumb now? [:D]
