    Somewhere in this forum I saw someone mention a bug where a silent install of Mssage Saver would not install some components and result in a missing .net error when launching Message Saver from within Groupwise.
    We seem to have the same problem.

    Is there a resolution to this? We’re wanting to push out Message Saver and Formativ Runtime to about 200 users as we upgrade clients to Groupwise 7. Ideally I wanted to install runtime and message saver as addons in Groupwise but message saver just won’t run when I try this.

    any help appreciated

    Aaron.

    It appears that the GroupWise Client MSI won’t allow the launching of another third party MSI located in the Addons configuration location. We have reported this issue to Novell and waiting for the response. We will post the response from Novell here.

    Alternatively, you can use Novell ZENworks to distribute Formativ and solutions to large number of workstations. Novell ZENworks is Novell’s premier desktop management solution. ZENworks for Desktops makes it easy to roll out and register Formativ Studio, Creator and Runtime automatically for large numbers of users from a central location. ZENworks also makes it easy to update Formativ whenever new software becomes available. See the “Formativ Studio Users Guide” for more information.

    NOTE: Installing Message Saver for All Users
    Reported by a customer, installing Message Saver works fine with the user that installs but does not work if change to a different user.

    Solution:
    It appears that the problem is the ALLUSERS variable within our Formativ Framework for .NET 1.0 installer is not defaulting to “all users”, which it should. We are planning to update the installer for the next release. In the mean time, you should be able to use the work-around shown below. Install the products in the following sequence and use the new parameter ALLUSERS=1 when installing the Formativ Framework for .NET 1.0. This parameter will force an “All Users” installation.

    • formativruntime.exe /s /i-config.txt
    • advansys-formativ-framework-1.0.msi /q ALLUSERS=1
    • advansys-message-saver-pack-2.0.exe /s /allusers

    If desired, you can download the stand-alone Formativ Framework for .NET installer from here: http://www.advansyscorp.com/formativ_support_framework.htm

    Hope this helps.
