Software Deployment Question

Missing DLL'S and OCX at deploying

07/16/2008 3079 views
We are using Adminstudio to make msi packages. The "clean" workstation where Adminstudio has been installed on, contains dll's and ocx's installed by Adminstudio. Some applications needs this files too and they will not been distributed to the workstations. I need to make a sort of "runtime packages" wich contains the missing files. Who can help me, to find a solution?

Regards Jan

These will almost certainly be the InstallShield runtimes. They are downloadable from...I can't recall who owns InstallShield this week, but whoever it is, from their web site. There are links in posts here on AppDeploy. Use the 'Search' facility. IIRC, they are also available as merge modules, which is a neat way to distribute them, rather than adding the MSIs as a pre-requisite to your deployment mechanism.

To be honest you shouldnt be running your repackages on a box that has the full adminstudio installed anyway. You should have a network share with the repackager on, connect to this share from a clean xp build and run the repackager, thus avoiding the problem altogether.
