  • Deploying software via GP (again)

    Hi folks,

    can someone advise me, what would be the easiest way to deploy .MSI, .MSP and registry settings via Group Policy?

    I tried to slipstream .msp into administrative install of .msi but that doesn't work for some reason in my case. I might be doing it wrong... so if you have some intructions shoot.

    Can I incorporate .msp into .msi via ORCA? How?
    Can I use vbs to install .msi, .msp and than to apply reg settings? Can someone point me to script?

    Thanks for your time...

      Believe me I checked before... like I said, slipstream doesn't work for me.

      When I perform administrative install, msiexec /a setup.msi, and than msiexec /a setup.msi /p patch.msp as a result, i have folder with setup.msi (much smaller than original one) and folders from the patch with it?!
      Should I consider this to be pathced .msi and use it?

        What software are you trying to deploy?
        Have you successfully deployed software by a GPO previously?

        Please provide more information about your setup/configuration and what exactly you have done.
        1 1 was a racehorse.
        2 2 was 1 2.

          Yes, I deployed stuff via GPO previously.

          I am trying to deploy Passlogix SSO agent.

          Can someone confirm, when you slipstream .msp to .msi, what is the result. Just a single .msi file, or like in my case, .msi + many install folders (program files...)?

            Don't know your app but when I did Office 2007 and "slipstreamed" the *.msp Updates into the Updates Folder, it left a bunch of files and did not intergrate into the install files as per an O/S Service Pack slipstream.
            Hope that makes sense.
