G'Day People,

I have a duplicate file copy from this directory:
Program Files\TRIM Context\_user\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns\
Windows\Profiles\Application Data\Microsoft\AddIns

Instead it goes to:
C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Application data\Microsoft\AddIns

I'm trying to get the excel plugin (tsjxl9.xla) for TRIM to automatically populate each user profile. Install is by SMS using admin rights. We're using Office 2003 SP1.
I've got the addin populating the addin menu, just need this file copy to work.
I'm probably missing something really obvious.

Thanks in advance for any help or advice,

PS Has anyone else transformed this app before?

A little more light from yonder tunnel (sorry no train! rail strike),

The 'C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Application Data' is created by SMS for the system account. This is where windows installer resolves it's AppData folder when installed with System context using administator install with SMS.

I'm going to see if I can now run an active setup or self heal when I get SMS to force a reboot \re-login. I've been reading John McFadyens articles on self healing, thought I'd give it a try. More fun than a barrel of monkeys[8D].

Stay tuned, hang loose,

Hi Wayne,
Installer and the MSI are behaving just perfectly well!
This is the scenario, where only solution are Active Setup together with Duplicate Files.
If you read Johns article carefully, you know what to do.
