Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 msi installer requires setup.exe
Hi, I would like to deploy Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 via group policy by means of a msi installer. however, the msi's from the iso all say that they need to run from setup.exe. how can I get a windows installer working? Thanks.
Open the MSI and see how it's checking whether or not it's been run via the stub. It'll be either a condition based on a property value or a Custom Action.
You know you're going to have to create a transform for this, don't you?
Know, however, that Microsoft have opened up a world of pain with their use of set-up executables: calling configuration details from XML files, having to apply psuedo-patches where we used to use "proper" transforms (yeah, yeah, patches *are* basically transforms but you know what I mean...)
