Hi All
I have a dilemma, I have to install the SAP Duet Client for Microsoft onto 200 machines.
The problem that I have is that there is 6 components that needs to be on, before I can install the client

  1. Dot Net Framework 2.0[/align]

  2. Microsoft Windows Installer 3.1 which reboots the pc[/align]

  3. Microsoft KB899317[/align]

  4. Microsoft KB907417[/align]

  5. Microsoft Office 2003 Smart Tags[/align]

  6. Microsoft Duet Client Visual Studio Tools[/align]

  7. SQL Express [/align]

  8. Microsoft Duet Client 2005[/align]

What is the best way to do this? We are using SMS2003 to deploy the apps. I know that creating dependencies in SMS for applications is really troublesome and I am not a VB fundi (if a script is the best idea)
Any ideas

This probably belongs in the 'Package Development' forum. I expect one of the moderators will move it.

I wound't bother with script. I think the best option is to wrap the whole deal into an EXE wrapper. Both of the main players in MSI authoring have EXE-generating tools.
