Has anyone out there successfully created a package to deploy EMC7?
The company I work for requires that all applications, even those going out to just 1 user, be packaged and pushed via LANDesk.
I have created a few transform files that will install properly, but after reboot I constantly receive the "The certificate file is missing or has been corrupted. Please re-install it." error messages upon launch of any of the components. I have tried the suggested fixes posted on the Roxio forums for this error message (ie: HKLM/Software/Roxio and HKCU/Software/Roxio permission fix and the certupdate.exe) but sadly none of them have fixed the issue.

Any thoughts, suggestions or tips would be appreciated.

I have a bit of an update on this problem if it is any help:
Apparently I was suppressing an error message during the install:
"Could not open the certificate reading DLL"

Any further thoughts would be appreciated.
Or if anyone has successfully made a transform file, care to share? [;)]

I am having the same problem repackaging EasyMediaCreater7; it doesn't seem to like the MST. Have you been able to resolve this issue?

FYI - I just sent babydor an email through AppDeploy and he left his position where he was at. So, I am not sure if he is around to advise unless he checks the boards or reassociates his email.

Perils of being a contract-based package developer I dare say.

But to answer your question, no, I was never able to create a useful package for EMC7.
Since my first posting here and over at the Roxio forums, I have received a good dozen or so emails from other folk with the same problems...

Of course, the official line from Roxio is that they don't support repackaging of EMC7....unless you want to talk to their licensing folk about a nice site-license option.
As I was only working on a package for about 10 users, that was out of the question.

I tried the whole host of things I could think of to package that one up...neither Wise/LANdesk-based captures or straight installs based off the .msi worked.

So I unofficially shelved the EMC7 package request and never got back to it before my contract was up........and I don't regret it one bit [;)]

FYI - Not knowing what I had in my hand I called Roxio for assitance. According to Roxio you must have the Corporate edition with site lisence in order to distribute this in a corporate environment. Roxio checked the TSID # and indeed it was the retail version. So with that, I got myself off the hook somewhat until they, the company I work for, get the correct version.
Babydor, you are correct, not that I didn't believe you, I couldn'y tell what I had.
I am really curious how different the Corp. version is from the retail version.

I have been trying to deploy EMC7 since June, without success. I must have been one of the first because I have just started to see other posts on the topic.

Our company does have a volume license and it still doesn't work. I just spoke to our Roxio sales rep and was informed that version 7.1 which will allow network deployment and silent installs has not been released.

Apparently it was due out in July but has been delayed, mostly because Roxio's software division was recently purchased by Sonic. The estimated availabilty of the patch is October.

I hope this saves someone else the hours of aggravation I have spent.

Just because it says it supports network deployments that doesn't mean it will work for ow you deploy, I have numerous products that "support network deployments" but cannot be repackaged or deployed via a GPO as an MSI. So then we end up having to script it, that can be done for everything, anything can be scripted to make it work, but then we defeat the purpose of migrating away from legacy technologies.
