Installation folder

Hello out there in support land.

I have all of the PCs in my network locked down tightly for security reasons. I only grant users access to change the folders they need as they need them.

What I would like to know is this: To which folder is the smsxmsi.inf attempting to install? I have, potentially, 20-25 users that are going to need this installed and would rather not have to take the time to go to, or remote into, every PC and would rather not push out through GPO.

Your co-operation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

BINARY DEPLOYMENT

******************

 

The latest 32-bit .msi-based 7.7.0.20 release packages are here:

 

  http://my.meadroid.com/scriptx/bits/release/smsx.cab

  http://my.meadroid.com/scriptx/bits/release/scriptx.msi

 

Both packages contain the same bits, and these days the MANDATORY requirement for local admin privileges is identical regardless of whether you choose an online install (smsx.cab) or local (ScriptX.msi).

 

Please note that you can access these files from our site, but you shouldn't deploy them from there.

 

Download whatever you need and deploy them from your own servers.

 

FYI, here's the boilerplate for the local install:

Please do this (EXACTLY, in full, no workarounds available):

 

Log on to your PC(s) with full local computer administrator privileges:

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

**VITAL**: this will NOT work if you don't do this, or have someone else do it for you.

 

Please do NOT proceed past this point without access to local admin privileges (i.e. someone must be logged on as a member of your PC's computer administrator user group. NOT 'domain' or 'virtual' or 'remote' or any other sort of admin, this must be *local*).

 

If you are not the administrator for your machine you will need to contact your systems administrator for their help.

 

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 

ONLY THEN:

 

Run this file:

 

  http://my.meadroid.com/scriptx/bits/release/scriptx.msi

 

(Remember that you should right-click on the .msi file, choose 'Properties' and then on the 'General' tab click the 'UNBLOCK' button and then click 'OK' to allow the binaries to install correctly.)

 

This will install the current release of ScriptX.
