Default Question about software deployment


Hi, I have setup a zap file which contain the following
line "SetupCommand = "D:\group\public\MIS\asi.exe""

However, when I enable this on group policy on a group of
users and when users login to system, the software is not
installed.
So What is the error ?

In fact the error doesn't exist, ZAP Software deployment within a Group
Policy can only be published , not assigned and automatically installed. The
end user can install the package from Add/and remove programs it will show
up there. How ever the user must often be administrator to install the
particular ZAP application.

In fact, you can modify the zap file to support some level of automated
install without the requiring the user to go to ARP. Specifically if you add
a couple of lines like this in the zap file:

[ext]
"abc"=

Where "abc" is a file extension type owned by your application, then when
the user clicks on a file of this type, the application setup will start.
Its sort of like a poor man's version of adverti*****t that you get with the
Windows Installer.

Default question about software deployment


Hello All,
The question I have is about software deployment:
1. If I setup the XP pro client for software deployment and everything works
fine and I then clone this image of the machine and keep the logon name and
computer name the same, will deployment occur again automatically once i
boot up the new 'imaged' machine. If NOT then I have a problem,.this is
exactly what is happening in my situation. I am under the impression that
deployment happens via computer name(because I have it under comp config in
GPO) in the OU that I specify. I do not have the setting enabled to
Uninstall once it falls off of management. Is there something else that is
running that is making the software deploy automtically, such as recognizing
that I am logging onto a different machine with that SID for computer and
user account? Is there anyway that I can stop this from occuring?
Thanks,
Altria

It is not deployed by machine name. There are three items that determine if
a program is managed. One component for program management is in the local
system registry under the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\microsoft\windows\curre ntversion\group
policy\appmgmt\<GUID of the Assigned Package of the Group Policy Object>

The second component is the contents of %windir%\System32\Appmgmt\<user SID>
folder. The Appmgmt.ini file contains the LDAP reference to the Group Policy
Object for the managed program.

The final component is the Group Policy Object information that is stored in
the Active Directory. If either of the first two items are missing or
damaged, the Group Policy Extension for Application Management acts as if
the program is unmanaged, and the symptom occurs. For example, if the SID
folder is missing (so the Gpt.ini and *.aas script are gone), the computer
must remove the existing program, and then reinstall the managed package.
