I want to capture Articulate 9. It requires dotnet2.0, as well as vc++ redis., and at the time of source installation, it extracts 3 msi files in temp, and it installs those.
I tried to capture it, in this scenario.
1st i install following prereq.
1) dotnet
2) vc++
3) 3 extracted msi's
and then i captured actual package, but in that package so many assemblies got captured. When I used picture taker, then Those assemblied are not captured, so I deleted them.
Now problem is, after installation if I am launching application directly in users, then it is prompting me for "ui_admin portal username and passwords". In source it does not give any prompt.
When I launch application 1st in admin and then in users, then it does not give any prompt again. I tried to capture 1st use settings as well, but i did not get anything, which is going in allusers or in hklm/hkcr
Pls guide me, have I done anything wrong while capturing?

For captured apps, the procedure you should ALWAYS follow is (once again...)

- install your package
- remove any flags, registry or otherwise, which the vendor's installer uses to determine installed state. This is to force the installer to perform a full install, rather than an update/fix.
- take a 'Before' snapshot using a lightweight snaposhotting tool, e.g. InstallWatch
- run the vendor's install over the top of your package
- take an 'After' snapshot
- add any relevant changes to your package
- repeat until your install matches the vendor's

Depending on the application, you may want to run it after installation so as to capture any configuration data it might record.
