Protect Install

Hello, we're using a new classroom capture software in our classrooms. The program is great, but it requires that a specific version of Quicktime be installed. Is there a way using the 1000 box that we can keep the version of Quicktime from being changed? I think I've found a way to use labels and check to see if the version has been changed, but I was wondering if there was a way to keep it from ever being changed. Using the check will help, but it's not something I want constantly running on the machines.

The kbox itself cannot prevent it from being changed but the kbox can help you implement windows features to prevent it from being changed. So research what methods might be used to do this:
* group policy to prevent uninstall?
* permissions on files/ folders?
* hiding the software item from the add/remove programs list?

Another thing the kbox could do is check to see what the current version is and if it is not that version then it could attempt and uninstall of the existing version and then deploy the version you want to maintain.

E.g. a script could check for existence of a regkey or version of a file -- it that is missing then it could take action.

Be good to hear about customer's in the field have done some of the above.
