NVivo v7.0 requires 3 components:
MS SQL Express 2005
Crystal Reports 2005
NVivo v7.0

Running the NVivo “setup.exe” file should extract a directory similar to “_is49D” in your temporary directory.
Wait until NVivo starts to install the Crystal Reports 2005 software, then copy the above temporary file to another location.

The directory should now contain the NVivo setup files, an additional directory with “SQLEXPR.EXE” and a directory with “CRRedist2005_x86.msi”.

Installing SQL Server Express 2005:

Run the “SQLEPR.EXE” file and watch the dialog screen to see where the setup files are extracted to.

Copy this directory to your network installation directory.
Ignore the “$shtdwn$.req” file as it will most likely be locked and is not required for the installation.

Now you have the Server Express 2005 installation files, NVivoÂ’s installation command is as follows:

“\MS SQL Express SP1\setup.exe” /qb ADDLOCAL=ALL SQLAUTOSTART=1 INSTANCENAME="QSRNVivo" SQLCOLLATION="Latin1_General_BIN"

Installing Crystal Reports 2005:

Copy the “CRRedist2005_x86.msi” file to your network installation directory

A standard msi install for Crystal Reports will work fine.

Msiexec.exe /I “/CRRedist2005_x86.msi” /qb!+

Installing NVivo v7.0:

Trying to run the “QSR NVivo 7.0.msi directly will result in an error stating “This installation cannot be run directly launching the MSI package. You must run setup.exe”

To get around this checkout:
Using a MST file:
http://www.appdeploy.com/tips/detail.asp?id=54

Using ORCA:
Open the “QSR NVivo 7.0.msi” using ORCA.
Add an entry to the “Properties” table called “ISSETUPDRIVEN” and give it a value of “1”. Now save the file.

Copy the modified “QSR NVivo 7.0.msi” to your network installation directory.

A standard msi install for NVivo v7.0 will work fine.

Msiexec.exe /I “\QSR NVivo 7.0.msi” /qb!+

Activating NVivo v7.0:

Unfortunately NVivo requires to be activated locally on each machine after installation.

Although I have been unable to automate the activation, I have found a way to populate the Activation form with the relevant information. All that is left is for the user to click the “Activate” button at the bottom.

Registry:
Install NVivo to a machine but do not activate it.
Export the two following branches from that machines registry to your network installation directory:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Environment]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\QSR\NV]


Load QSR NVivo v7.0, fill in the Activation form with your relevant information and activate the software.

Once the software has been activated copy the following 2 files to your network installation directory:

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\GDIPFONTCACHEV1.DAT (or similar)

%USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\IsolatedStorage\ewz0hxdp.vbg\de5qie1u.5lk\StrongName.uxqcj3vil5ggexyvqohresqdvddip4u1\AssemFiles\QSR.NVivo.7.0\isolated.config

NOTE*: both files contain uniquely named directories/filenames, so you may find your files in a slightly different location.
Both files and directory structure must be copied before launching the NVivo application to prevent the program creating its own directory structure.

The first time you activate the software you will most likely receive an error message. Acknowledge the error message and click the “Activate” button again.
