Umetrics provides since a while back a native msi-package. A script still offers more customisability. The below script is what I use to deploy Umetrics Simca-P+ v12.0 over Active Directory with a GPO.

1. Get the native msi-package from the Umetrics web site at http://www.umetrics.com/default.asp/pagename/downloads_software/c/1. It may also be distributed as is on cd if you're already a previous owner.

2. Install the package on one machine manually first, typing in the correct serial number. Don't check the demo checkbox unless you don't have the serial.

2.1 Start the application, and a registration dialog box opens. Assuming you have a license server on your network choose the (network) license server button. If you don't choose as appropriate from the three choices.

2.1 Close the application when regged and done.

2.2 Go to %allusersprofile%\application data\Umetrics-folder and collect the UmetricsLicensePaths.xml file. Put this file in the same shared folder as in §3.

3. Put the msi-package in a shared folder accessible from all computers on your network.

4. Create a cmd-file in the same folder as in §3, I called it "_deploy_simca120.cmd", and enter the lines between the "---".

Explanations for the above script:

* Check for and uninstall as necessary for Simca-P+ v11. You may rem this out or delete entirely if you want to keep oldr versions as appropriate for your system.

* Check for and uninstall as necessary for Simca-P+ v11.5. You may rem this out or delete entirely if you want to keep oldr versions as appropriate for your system.

* Check if Simca-P+ v12 is already installed. If it is, exit with a message.

* Install Simca-P+ v12 to the default folder "%ProgramFiles%\umetrics\simca-p+ 12.0" and use the serialnumber nnnn-nnnn-nnnn.

* Copy the license server xml-file to the proper folder in %allusersprofile%.

* If a Simca-P+ desktop icon is created, delete it from the %allusersprofile%\desktop-folder.

5. Add a GPO and point it to the cmd-file. Deploy it the usual way.

6. You're done.

Since Umetrics now provides a native msi-package, you might also deploy it directly without the script. Tweak the msi-package with Orca (see notes for Simca-P+ 11.5). This is however untested, I don't see why it wouldn't work with v12 as well though.
