    How to write install script for network setup?



    Hi,

    does anyone know how to write install script to do network setup, i.e.
    to double click setup.exe on one workstation and install the
    applications on another workstation? Where can I get samples for this?

    Thanks.

    I'm looking for this as well - see the discussion "Network Installation" in
    the file-transfer group. Haven't found anything yet, and I'm currently
    thinking about how to do it. It would be nice if there was a HOWTO on it in
    the KB, but I haven't found any yet ;)

    Danielle,

    A workstation installation script is really no different than a regular
    installation script that you would run from a CD or a Floppy Diskette.

    Create the project and components, and write your script. Build your
    media as a CD-ROM. All of the resulting files that show up in the
    "..\Media\<build name>\Disk Images\Disk1" directory need to be installed
    along with your application.

    You can make all of those files a part of a "Netsetup" component in your
    main installation program. So what you're really doing is installing an
    installation script along with your program!

    Thank you for the advice. I still have another question: how can I write an
    install script which would connet to a remote machine and copy netsetup.exe
    to it and launch the process from the remote machine?
