What are the software title prerequisites?

  • .NET
  • VB Redistributables
  • Java
  • etc, etc
How are the prerequisites installed today?
Source Media access (exe, msi, self-extracting zip)
Can the software title be customized to your companies needs?  If the answer is yes, how?
  • Using MSI Properties on install
  • Using MST Transform files
  • Using Command Line switches
  • Using INI file includes
What are the settings needed for this software title?
  • Server name
  • ports
  • Property settings

How will you maintain this software title after repackaging?

What permissions are needed?

  • Does this software need to be installed per system or user?
