Hi guys,

Im trying to disable the automatic update option in Nero 6 Reloaded. Im using the original installation from the cd as it has a /silent command line parameter built in making the msi unnessecary. I have isolated the correct registry entry, exported it and changed it, but how can I make sure the registry entry gets changed after I distribute the package over sms?

You can open the registry key remotely and check a few using regedit.exe. Just choose the option to connect network registry in the file menu. If you want to check many systems you can use the Remote System Query Utility from Install Solutions http://www.InstallSolutions.net. If the reg key is under a current user hive then you might run into some issues if that user is not logged in.

i dont know SMS very good, but you sure can execute a command on the remote machine with it?
So You could create a .reg file that contains the registry entry as you want to have it, and run it using a SMS package that executes "regedit -s MyChange.reg".

Hi -

This is an SMS question, really....

Martin.Appel's suggestion will work.

The way to set it up in SMS 2003 is to Create an SMS package, in it place two programs.

A) Install_Nero6 -- do NOT advertise this. Put your command to install nero here.

B) Push_Reg -- Advertise this.

In Push_Reg do what Martin suggests. Make sure that your pathing will work - that the job will be able to find both regedit.exe and your reg file. Make sure you place a finite (like 15 minutes) "Maximum allowed run time" in the requirement settings, so that it will fail if regedit -s throws-up an unhandled error messagebox.

In the Advanced program properties, select "Run another program first", and point to your Install_Nero6 program you just created. Make any other property changes you need to do, then save.
Advertise the Push_reg program.

Your SMS report on the advertisement will show "success" only if both of the two programs succeed.

Regards,
William
