package application which download files

Hi Friends,

I need to package an application in a specific scenario:

Application source is located on an internal server:


On this location there is a setup.exe which when executed downloads some files from this location and some file from some other location and install the application to local machine.

I have to take a remote of one machine from where I have to access this server and run the setup.exe.

Complete source media is not provided. This is the way application installs.

So, I am accessing remote machine and trying to execute the setup.exe from

and taking snapshot of this process...considering it will download the required files and things will get capture...

I am not sure if this is the correct process to create package of this scenario.

Any suggestions will really help me.

I am not sure if this is the correct process to create package of this scenario. I'm not sure how else you could possibly create it. Carry on... :-)

Thanks for your comments.

But I observed a strange behavious. After post scan, wise gives a message as "checking dependencies" for approximate 45 minutes and then finally it shown that there are various dependencies and asked to add it...I accepted that and finally I found nothing was captured..... [&:] Really strange

Any suggestions....what could have caused this....

you have a remote workstation and a physical workstation

you are doing the capture on your physical workstation and installing the software on the remote workstation

can you not map drives to all these servers from your physical box where you have wise installed

if you remote desktop and install software on that box. you are dealing with that box only and not your physical workstation

correct me if I am wrong

no...this is some confusion...

I am logged on to a remote machine. Installed wise on it.

Now I run snapshot on this remote machine and from this machine I have to access a server location where application source exist....i have to run the setup on remote machine...applicaton will get installed to remote machine from the server...

this thing I need to capture...and have been facing issues as mentioned in previous comments...

Hope this makes it clearer...

hi, you have to run the installation on the PC that you have Wise installed. it's obvious but just to confirm. Later, you may use a Log to know what is going on..
