> -> How can we specify which DB the interactive Installer has to use ?
I assume you're using the SE?
Although you can create more than one DB in the Manager, the netinst.nid DB
is the only database the installer will read. The multi-db support is a part
of the Enterprise Edition.

the acrobat full version is somewhat tricky to script.
One of the issues is, that the distiller printer driver is not very
"standard" - in fact i'm amazed that it worked at all with "InstallPrinter"
:-) has that user you tried it out with got admin privileges?
if you want to get rid of that message, you need to work around the
include the printer-key in the registry (HKLM\System\CCS\Control\print) in
the spy's settings (it is excluded by default) and redo your spy. Be sure to
reboot AND use BOTH printers (Distiller and PDF-Writer) once to create a pdf
BEFORE you take the second snapshot.
then remove the InstallPrinter-Command from the NI-Script.
You also should stop the Spooler service at the start of the script and
start it again at the end
If you have "locked-down" NT, W2K or XP workstations, it might be necessary
to adjust the security
for some Regkeys or directories as well - that depends on how much
privileges your end-users have.
Don't worry - it doesn't get much harder than the Distiller - most other
packages are way easier to script :-)
Hi Martin Appel,
Thanx a lot for you taking time to answer, really I appreciate.
1) Ok fine to me (yes as we use the demo version, SE version only
2) You're right there too, it worked after the reboot, this being done under
admin credentials.. I'll again package it following your procedure and
Well, I can tell you that I'm for the most well impressed by your product.
Packaging is one of the technologies I have to build some experience on,
having only played for my personal fun with the free WinInstall LE when
Windows 2000 was released
So of course your product can't be compared to the old/discontinued/relaunch
WinInstall (Le or Pro), and I don't know some of the "maybe" competitor to
your product, but I really have good impression on NetInstall..
And I really wish I'll have the time to learn it and have the help/tools to
explore it thorougly..
Okay enough with this ! thank you again for the answer ! Perhaps will you
accept to help me again another time
Hi AGain Martin ¨!!
