creating an msi for the solidworks installer

Question asked by Bob Allen on Feb 28, 2011



We have a network version of SolidWorks at our school which we have recently purchased. The licence server is setup ok to deal with the network licences, and if we manually install the software it seems to talk to this server with no issues.


However, the software needs to be installed on a large number of machines around the school, and we have been having issues creating an MSI from the installer so that we can remotely deploy the software. Has anyone else tried to create an MSI for this, and if so any useful pointers?


The school computers are rebuilt at least once a year, and a 30 minute install on each machine doesnt sound like a fun job.


Any help would be gratefully received
