Note
The current (March 08) installer is in reality 4 installers in one and a surprise package. To get a truely silent install (no windows) you need to unpack.

1. GoogleSketchUpWEN.exe -> disk1\setup.exe & some data.cab's

2. Setup.exe -> Folder with...ta da...GoogleToolbarInstaller_EN.exe & SketchUpInstaller.exe

3. SketchUpInstaller.exe -> Disk1\Setup.exe
With this last setup.exe you need to (/r) record a response file. The final command is as described

"%sketchup%\setup.exe" /s /SMS /f1"%sketchup%\setup.iss" /f2"%temp%\sketchup_setup.log"

Google Sketchup doesn't come in an MSI file so I used WinInstall LE to repackage the EXE file. Then I created a new MSI file with the server.dat (which includes the location of the license file on the server). I also created two registry entries to remove the "learning center" and the "instructor" so they don't show on start up:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\SnappyInstructor\Show
REG_DWORD = 0

0 = dont show
1 = show

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Google\SketchUp6\Google SketchUp TOTD\ShowOnStartUp

REG_SZ = "false"

THIS IS FOR THE FREE VERSION

If you don't want to repackage - you can deploy the setup executable. Create a setup.iss file. Copy the installation and the iss file to a network share.
"\\networkshare\xpsoft\Google\Google Sketchup 6.0"

Deploy with the following code.

"\\networkshare\xpsoft\Google\Google SketchUp 6.0\GoogleSketchUpWEN.exe" /s /f1"\\networkshare\xpsoft\Google\Google SketchUp 6.0\setup.iss"

rem Icon Cleanup
del "c:\documents and settings\all users\desktop\Google Sketchup.lnk" /F /Q
del "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Google SketchUp 6\Uninstall or Repair.lnk" /F /Q

If you own a license for SketchUp Pro - do the same setup as above. License a test machine. Copy "C:\Program Files\Google\Google SketchUp 6\Support\SketchUp6.lf" out to your network share.

Then do a simple copy command back to the same location on your client machines.

To get Layout working correctly, install the legacy installer and get the product code from;
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
Then match your custom msi product code to the legacy.

Hard coded into layout to look for the path of the server.dat file in;
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{xxx...xxx}\InstallLocation
