Deploy msi + custom file

Deploy msi + custom file

Deploy msi + custom file

I have an msi I can deploy via SMS.

I also wish to deploy a configuration file in the local user profile (say, in the c:\Documents and Settings\Profile\Bob\Application Data\AppName\ folder)

Is this easy using sms2003? Or do i need some jiggery pokery?

RE: Deploy msi + custom file

I think this should be possible. When do you want the config file to be copied? After running the MSI file on the computers or before running?


RE: Deploy msi + custom file

Some people have roaming profiles.
Most people have local profiles.
Users share computers.

Ideally, the app is not installed to all computers except for a start-menu/desktop icon shortcut which when clicked, installed the app if not already installed and copies the config file if not already installed.
