Software Deployment Question

Lotus Notes 7

03/09/2007 4289 views
I have made an installation of Lotus Notes 7 with a custom mst using IS Tuner For Lotus Notes which is working just fine.
The company I work for has made their own software deployment engine so in addition to the MSI and MST we are using VBscripts as well as the MST to override configurations made by the installation.
All users must install Lotus Notes.
My problem is making new packages for deploying the software for Designer and the Administrator. I want these two to be two seperate packages and optional for sertain users to install.
I have tried using the IS Tuner For Lotus Notes, but I can't choose not to install the Client software.
Since the Client software is already installed I don't want it to be installed again, since this would mess up the configurations made from the previous installation.

Does anyone know how to install only the Designer and the Administrator?
Can it be done with the original software?

I could ofcourse make a new MSI using Wise for Windows Installer, but I want to avoid it if possible.

if you know the names of the features you want to change you can use the windows installer api to change a feature state.

similar to this

set objInstaller = CreateObject("WindowsInstaller.Installer")
objInstaller.ConfigureFeature("ProductCodehere", "FeatureNameHere", 3
