Installing from a network share path

6 posts in this topic

Is it possible to have WPI configured to install my apps from a UNC path?

It seems that when I add the double backslash it is getting converted to a single backslash by the time it gets added to the registry.

e.g.

"\\dmmsupport1\install\_SETUP\sqlcli\standard\x86\setup\setupsql.exe" -s -m -SMS -f1 "\\dmmsupport1\install\_SETUP\sqlcli\standard\sqlcli.iss"

turn into...

"\dmmsupport1\install\_SETUP\sqlcli\standard\x86\setup\setupsql.exe" -s -m -SMS -f1 "\dmmsupport1\install\_SETUP\sqlcli\standard\sqlcli.iss"

yes you can and it is simply adding 6 backslashes! yes \\\\\\ before the server name.

your code would be

cmd1[pn]=['\\\\\\dmmsupport1\\install\\_SETUP\\sqlcli\\standard\\x86\\setup\\setupsql.exe -s -m -SMS -f1"\\\\\\dmmsupport1\\install\\_SETUP\\sqlcli\\standard\\sqlcli.iss"']

This is code entered directly into the config.js, not sure what would happen if you use the config option.

just tested it in config.js

With this you should not use the config option at all, as it parses the 6 backslashes with every click of the save button so that you are eventually left with only two.

Best if you have a plain Server install to use an older version.

It should work on all versions but as i said you cant use the config option, not at all as this deletes the backslashes!!!

Use an old version where this config option is not implemented...

What error report are you getting?

can you post a copy of it

below is a copy of my WPI that i use at work through a network.

WPI_EBRO.rar
