David,
Our developers found a way around it and have supplied a dll for me to
call that will handle it.

Thanks,

Sean

Thanks for this Edward but unfortunately Active Directory does not allow the
passing of Command Line parameters.

Daniel,

If you could afford to have two copies of the install-files, what you could
do is to change the setup.ini in the Active-Directory-version and add/change
the CmdLine= entry (under [Startup]) to ACTIVEDIRLAUNCH=1

I use Active directory for automatically instaling and deinstalling
applications.
When user log ons, old version of application is automattically uninstalled
, but Active Directory doesnt install automatically new version of
applications, why?
What properties do I have to set in my MSI package AND Active directory to
make it do their jobs. Uninstall with ActiveDirectory works perfectly (when
user logs on), but after that nothing happens, (installation of new version
doesn't happen.). I can only see my new version of application in
Add/Remove panel with remove button disabled (on the user computer). New
MSI package is set to "Assigned" on the group policy" - maybe this is wrong?

What is happening ?
