Creating MSI of Microsoft Secruity Essentials for deploying via group policy.
Posted on 2011-02-24
We have a SBS 2008 and we want to deploy MSE to the client PCs, about 10 in total.
The Group policy should be no problem, create the group, set policy to install MSE and add computers.
The creating MSI has been a problem, I cannot find a msi file for download and creating one has not been successful either. I have tried a couple, first "exe to msi" it creates a msi file but that file never successfully installs. Second was "Advanced Installer 8.0.2" converting exe didnt make a msi that didnt work, then I tried the "advanced repackager" method on a Virtual PC xp mode, it ended up killing the virtual machine.
I thought surely deploying software from a server is pretty routine procedure and maybe someone could give me some protips of the best procedure for going about it.
