Has anyone had any success with getting Ribbon Hero 2 deployed over network?

From my basic research, it looks like it's being installed to a local profile, basically, it works as 'Per User', so it does not appear when a networked user logs on to a machine.

And the fact it installs to a user profile and not to the drive C, it takes up their profile space, which is something we do not want for this to happen. I would rather see it instaling to the drive C and be available to everyone.

Was wondering how others are doing this? What workaround did you use?

Thanks!

Holy cow...

This junk belongs on your training room PCs, nowhere else.

I am aware it belongs to training rooms, but we have a few rooms dotted around the building which is why I am trying to get this to work. Would be far better than installing it manually in each room of 25+ PCs!

Thanks for your reply, tho.

So you have training accounts, right? Why worry about cluttering those up? At the end of the session, you just delete the roaming ones and return the VM to a snapshot or re-Ghost the box (if you're a Dark Age site still).

Anyway, I found this: http://officelabs.vo.msecnd.net/eb933de5-a25d-48f5-8cb2-a43e47cf761e/2.1.615.0/RHSetup-XP.msi

 an "All users" version, apparently. Any use?

On the other hand, ignore it, I found it at http://www.ribbonhero.com/faq.html under "How do I install Ribbon Hero 2 for all the users on my computer?"

Must have missed the main website as I got the main installer from http://www.officelabs.com/projects/ribbonhero2/Pages/default.aspx with the download link and there's no "All user" download link from that site.

Anyway, thanks for the pointer. :D
