I'm pretty new with Admin Studio and I'm currently trying to create a custom MST install for Quicktime 7.71 with two custom user based configuration files that disable updates do all sorts of configurations on file associations etc... However I'm having problems delivering these custom files as I don't know how to resolve %USERNAME% variable upon install:
Problem is that when I create the folder structure and give a folder name of %USERNAME% it doesn't resolve the LogonUser. Instead it creates a structure that reads: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\.... So it never resolves to actual users ID.
Things I have tried so far:
1) I have used [LogonUser] and that didn't work
2) I Created a custom "Action Set Property" called CURRENTUSER and gave it a value of [LogonUser]. Placed the custom action in InstallExec Sequence with order of right after CostInitialize... (this didn't work, it just created a folder called C:\Users\CURRENTUSER....etc
Any advice on how to properly set up these two files to install in required folders would help me a lot.
Thank you all and sorry if this question was already answered. I searched the forums but was unable to find anything that could help me.
1. unzip quick time installer. 2. copy files to network share. run this script on the workstations. The first path is all one line. REM QuickTime 7.71 \\Path2networkShare\IEHelpers\QuickTime771\ AppleApplicationSupport.msi /qn \\Path2networkShare\IEHelpers\QuickTime771\QuickTime.msi /qn
