Already tried the first suggestion, gave the second suggestion a go and
still no joy......I'm beginning to think it may not be possible ........
thanks anyhow

Right. I looked in the "bible" for writing ADMs-the MS whitepaper-and
didn't find any reference to literals. You could try just putting the
quotes in quotes (e.g. ""%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\setup50.exe"
/APP:WAB /CALLER:WINNT /user /install"

and see if it parses it correctly, but I kinda doubt it. Also, you could
try using the standard escape character (\), as in
"\"%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\setup50.exe\" /APP:WAB /CALLER:WINNT
/user /install"

again-that's just a shot in the dark.

Thanks for the reply, I did think about this and if it's the only option
I will do it this way, but would prefer to make it un-editable if
possible.

How about using an EditText control and then just type this value into
the policy item, rather than hard coding the value into the ADM?

Subject: [gptalk] Speech Marks in ADM template values

 

Hi, 

I'm trying to create an adm template that needs the following text as a
value:

 

"%ProgramFiles%\Outlook Express\setup50.exe" /APP:WAB /CALLER:WINNT
/user /install

 

I'm stuck as the value has speech marks and I can't work out how to
include these speech marks in the value (as values in adm templates also
require speech marks).

 

Any advice greatly appreciated.
