Deployment Tip Summary

Caesar II is a program that our structural engineers have moved to over Algor. It is a pipe stress analysis software that we have licensed via a network hasp key. As pipe flexibility and stress analysis software, CAESAR II makes quick work of developing analysis models while clearly indicating areas of concern via color-coded stress models and animated displacements for any stress load case. Luckily thanks to some decent design and mostly usable silent installation instructions I was able to package Caesar II without much trouble.


  1. In the Caesar II CD navigate into the Folder Install DVD and then copy the folder CAESARII_2013R1 to your test machine.
  2. If you haven’t already done a test install, do a test install and take the nethasp.ini file you changed to add the NetHASP server address in and place it into a folder in your install files called nethasp.
  3. Create an install.bat with the code listed under install.bat below.
    1. This is an silent install for a “Red” (Network) key hosted on a server
    2. You need to use the silent install switches for both InstallShield and MSI’s to get it to be completely silent.
    3. Don’t forget to add the serial number in the setup.exe switch
    4. Sometimes you have to navigate to http://localhost:1947 -> Configuration -> Access to Remote License Managers and add the IP address of the license server in the search parameters.
    5. OLDCHECK and UNINSTALL are commented out of the code as they’re not needed now, but may be for later versions.
  4. Compile the working folder together into a zip file.
  5. For Use in the Dell KACE K1000: Find the software entry in the K1000. Set the Supported operating systems to the Windows 7 32/64bit. Then upload the zip and set the Category to Business and the Threat level to 1 – Safe.
  6. Navigate to the Distribution -> Managed Installations page and Choose Action -> Add New Item.
  7. Drop down the Software list and choose CAESAR II 2013 R1 ( (Or whatever version you’re using.)
    1. Set the installation command to Configure Manually and type in install.bat
    2. Check Don’t Prepend msiexec.exe and Delete downloaded files
    3. Input Notes about the install and set managed action to Execute Anytime (next available)
    4. Check Allow Snooze and put in a message, Set the timeout to 10 minutes and set the timeout action to Install Now
    5. Check Custom Post-Install Message and type in a message thanking the user for their patience and give them contact info in case it fails. Set the timeout to 15 Minutes.

Save the install and you’re ready to start pushing Caesar II!

Sequenced this in App-V v5 yesterday (SP2 hf 4, seq v 5.0.3400)

It all went quite well, until I tested the sequence, it failed, with a very weird message.
Then since they are in the middle of updates and I was on an old client, they decided to test on an updated App-V client (publishing via full infrastructure) it worked...

tick in the box move on.

Licensing, had to intall the SPLM license first, left that OUT of the Sequence. They have different license servers all over the world, so would have different license servers too.
