Note
Note that version 7.x is actually an .msi wrapped in an .exe. At running, the .msi will extract out to C:\Documents and Settings\%system%\%current_user%\Local Settings\Temp.

This .msi can then be copied out, and you can us it to create an administrative installation point using the /a switch.

Installation does not prompt for a license key, so you may want to import the results of activating the product into the original .msi. Activating creates:

an .ini file at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application DataTechSmith

and registry entries at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TechSmith\SnagIt\7

Note
Useful Registry Keys:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\7]
RegistrationDialogHasShown = 1 DWORD <- Disable registration dialog
ShowTipOfDay = 0 DWORD <- Do not show Tip of the day

The Below is what I use to disable the auto update feature.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\TechSmith\SnagIt\7\Updater]
Updater\AllowDateBasedCheck = 0 DWORD
Updater\DaysBetween = 14 DWORD
Updater\LastCheck = 06 E7 8D 43 00 00 00 00 BINARY
Updater\PromptToCheck = 0 DWORD

Because all of this is in the CURRENT_USER, you'll have to create a program to set the above values, and add it to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components]

Each time a new user signs on, the above settings will be handled through active setup.

To install Snagit pre-registered, here's the command line.

msiexec /I Snagit.msi /QB /L* C:\msi.log ALLUSERS=1 TSC_SETUP_TYPE="REGISTERED" NEWKEY="PutYo-urReg-istat-ionKe-yHere"

NOTE: I tried to use a transform file to do the above, and for some reason it didn't work. Turns out you have to make sure that you use TRANSFORMS= and not /TRANSFORMS=!

Note
It's possible to create an MSI package with WISE by using the before-after method. The only probleme I had was with a current_users registry key that was launching a repair process each time it was launch. To solve this problem transfert each Current_users key in your repackage under the currentUser component.

In order to install the Snag-it local printer stop and restart the spooler service in your package
