SMART Notebook software & K1000 deployment
I'm new to the K1000, but I've gotten the hang of it quickly. I'm having problems with my deployment of the Smart Notebook software though. I have a folder with the setup MSI, MST answer file, registry files for activation, etc...and I've been manually running a batch file that will do everything just fine.
My batch file:
ECHO SMART NOTEBOOK IS INSTALLING. DO NOT CLOSE THIS WINDOW.
ECHO -Department of Technology
msiexec /i "I:\ssc\MIS\SFigg\Software\SMARTgallery\install.msi" TRANSFORMS="smart.mst" RESPONSE_ACTIVATION="I:\ssc\MIS\SFigg\Software\SMARTgallery\SRS.reg" /qb
regedit /s "I:\ssc\MIS\SFigg\Software\SMARTgallery\SRS.reg"
Now, I've had to change that for K1000 deployment since it won't work with drive letters. I've put all my files (and gallery folder) all in one location, and changed the batch file to this:
msiexec.exe /i "install.msi" /qb TRANSFORMS="smart.mst"
copy "SMARTBoardService.lnk" "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\SMARTBoardService.lnk"
copy "SMARTBoardTools.lnk" "C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\SMARTBoardTools.lnk"
In the install manager, I've forced these paths:
Install directory: C:\Program Files\SMART Technologies\Education Software
Gallery content source location: "Gallery Data Files" (this should be in a folder called "Gallery Data Files" in same directory as install)
Gallery destination: C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\SMART Technologies Inc\
So I run it, and it seems to install Notebook just fine - but it fails on the gallery part, saying it can't locate that path. I've also tried "\Gallery Data Files" and had the same problem.
The way I've been deploying is to take all those files/folders, zip them up - upload it to the software section - make it online, run as local admin account....then I made a script to push it out to 1 test machine for now.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get this to work properly that is familiar with the software?
so that the conversation will remain readable.
