Be careful if using the response file method of deploying this application and the Installation and Configuration Guide pdf, as the command line specified in the guide is incorrect. The double quotes have been written incorrectly as â and â rather than " and this means the setup.exe completely ignores the response file.
Microstrategy 9.3 - I spent weeks on this damn thing until I finally got it captured and converted into a working MSI using Installshield. Takes sooooooooooo long to view, build, copy, install etc etc........
Initially the 'Desktop' app would not run, then when it did run it did not show the toolbar.
Ultimately the fix for this was to capture the app after rebooting AND logging on as Admin (because logging on as Admin completes the install) then building the ISM without using Merge Modules. If you use Merge Modules then it breaks the app.
You obviously have to exclude various unwanted stuff from the capture - particularly some CurrentControlSet Services stuff I seem to remember.
krb5.ini was not written properly using INIfile table so install it as a file.
Need to open up permissions for Users on :
C:\Program Files\MicroStrategy and C:\Program Files\Common Files\MicroStrategy
Had to create Immediate Custom Actions to run BEFORE InstallInitialize to delete various reg entries for HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\MicroStrategy ODBC Driver etc etc...
which were left behind by the previous version's uninstall and prevent new version installing.
Make sure these are removed by your uninstall to avoid future grief.
Good luck - it is a bit of a beast!
