I'm trying to script a silent install of 7.5.1 My trouble is that it would seem that the previous installation of 7.5 was done from a per user basis (sametime default?). So when I try to drop the 7.5.1 install on top it is looking for the source files in the profile that no longer exists. I can't seem to find a way to redirect the installer to an alternate location using a script. I know the MSI works as a source because i can browse to it manually at the dialog.

How can I get the installer to look where I want it to instead of where it thinks the source files are?

The SourceList is located at [HIVE]\Software\Microsoft\Installer\Products\<product code>\SourceList\Net
where '[HIVE]' is either HKEY_CURRENT_USER or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE depending on whether the product was installe dper-ser or per-machine respectively.

The list can be manipulated in script, too, using the WindowsInstaller.Installer object. There's a bunch of Installer scripts (amongst many others) at http://www.desktopengineer.com - look for MSISources.VBS specifically.

Thanks,
In HKLM I have the uninstaller source
In HKCU I have the installer source
Both changeable via script and of course changing HKCU will change HKU

I am trying to deploy my script via Altiris and I think that the script is running using the Altiris account through the agent.
This is creating a new key in HKU that has pulled in the old installer source. Where is that coming from. Can I change that?
