Transform - Outlook 2003 - Exchange Profile
Posted on 2004-09-27
I'm testing custom installation wizard transforms for outlook 2003 as a standalone product.
I've created succcessful transforms for office XP in the past.
The problem I'm having is that the transform isn't applying a default profile for outlook properly. I've specified in the transform to create a new profile with default exchange properties in it.
Instead, outlook is left in existing profile mode. When a person who already had a default exchange profile for their previous version of outlook, outlook 2003 will load and use their existing exchange settings.
For someone who had no existing profiles for outlook, outlook will ask the user to create a a new profile, and asks them what type of server/etc.
I'm using a setup.ini to specify the transform name. I'm doing a silent install of outlook 2003. The transform and msi packages are access via UNC path.
OTher settings from the transform are being applied, like the serial #, company name, but not settings like the default profile, or not using cached mode.
