Trying to get Symantec Auto Install to successfully package multiple applications in a single package
Posted on 2011-03-09
Hello - I've been told by Symantec tech support that it is not recommended to package multiple apps together in a single AI Build package executable. Now - correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the main reason one would want to use this tool?? When I check their white paper on it, it specifically indicates the opposite of what they're saying - "You can install one or more applications, and configure them to suit your requirements" (before taking the post-installation snapshot of the model computer). So - when I try packaging Office, Firefox, Adobe Reader, and a couple others small apps together, it fails. the snapshot was taken on a Windows 7 computer, and tested on another Windows 7 PC, so it's not an issue with the OS being different. Has anyone figured out the trick to this? Or do we truly need a separate AI package for each application?
