Hi all, I'm creating a package for QuickTest Professional 11.  I created a transform for the main MSI, that works fine.  Now there's also a post-install part (=QTPInstallReqs.exe) that configures "Internet Explorer settings" and "DCOM settings".  Since the silent option of the exe doesn't work, I followed the advice of quite some people and captured this post-install part.  This results in an MSI with a bunch of registry keys.  My question is, is it safe to just deploy that afterwards to any machine?  Because some of the registry entries seem generated unique strings (see attached image).

Or is there a better way to configure these settings silently?

Many thanks for your feedback!

You should have the 'Ext\stats' and 'Cryptography' keys in your exclusion list!!

DCOM permissions can be set in script via WMI. See MSDN for details of the relevant class http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/library/windows/desktop/aa394118%28v=vs.85%29.aspx

Apparently these methods are not available in Windows XP, which sad enough is the target OS in my case...

I know about the exclusions, but I quickly set up Wise just for this capture, didn't take time to configure exclusions etc. :-)

We knew that because, of course, we're all clairvoyant.

Use DCOMPERM called from script.
