This one is a very simple MSI. Because test servers are often used ahead of time it may be wise to input the server information as a property in the command line. It has changed little over the years. I typically use a transform to deal with any custom shortcuts and to modify the install location. The application is one that typically needs to have read write access to C:\Docnet in order to function, apply rights accordingly. That location might be possible to modify if your company controls the server install and configuration. However, many companies use a externally hosted server which is managed by Dictaphone (Nuance).


Most versions of this have required the name of the MSI to remain unchanged. When the application is used the first time the server will check for a proper install and initiate a repair if something is off. The initial install of Ex Text will drop a copy of its own MSI in C:\Docnet. If so much as the space in the MSI's name is changed the server will initiate a repair using the copy cached in the application's folder creating issues.

I have converted this App V, it seems to work nicely but is not used in production yet.
