We used the Office Customization Tool to create an extra MSP with which we add Access to some Office 2007 Professional installations. All is done on Windows 7 clients. We're using LDMS 9.0 SP2.
For a while now we are trying to distribute this MSP with LANDesk. As of yet, we haven't found a way which works without a hitch.
- Distributing a batch file, which uses msiexec to apply the MSP
- Distributing a VBScript, which uses the Installer.ApplyPatch method to apply the patch
- Making a Custom Definition and deplying that via Vulscan or a Repair Task
None of the above seem to be reliable enough. The batch file fires, but after that, no one knows what happens. The VBScript gives more control, but has issues of its own (cannot be run as Current User) and the Custom Definition is hard to configure correctly.
Question: is there a best known method for distributing this kind of MSP? If so, is this documented ans where can I find it?
Thanks in advance!
