Deploying it Via SCCM 2007

1. Go to the below link to extract the MSI's from the setup.exe

2. Author an Install script it's simple Msiexec.exe /i "Application.msi" to install

3. Follow the Below Instructions to create a registry key(Questkey.reg) for invoking License.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00




 4.The tougher part is invoking the License using a deployment tool (SCCM 2007), SCCM installs the s/w using a  system account and wheen it has to write to a current will notice the registry settings are not it is running under system account, and You don't want your users to invoke license manually...

Sol: Create 2 programs for Installation (Install, InstallDBAdmin Module)

1) Install- Write the script to install the registry key silently,

---> Under Program's ENVIRONMENT Tab make sure you are running the program with user's rights; Program can run only when a user is logged on.

---> Under Program's ADVANCED Tab; select the option Run another Program First and select "Program2-InstallDBAdmin Module" select the options "Always run this programs first"

2)InstallDBAdmin Module- Install script for the application.

5.Deploy the Packages, and Run the Program from "Run Advertised programs" and there you go..!
