[THIN] Re: MF XPe FR3 Unattended Install Change Partition/Directory

I'd have to agree with Ron, why?  Why is the corporate standard E:\?  What's
wrong with C:\?   If you're working off 5 year old standards, it's time to
re-evaluate.  5 years ago it was TSE4 w/ Metaframe 1.8.  W2Kx and MetaFrame
XP were non-existent back then.

Try not to steer too far from the Norm, the MF XP FR3 installer still has
issues.  (You'd think Citrix could have FIXED them by now)

Its our corporate standard; we have been using E:\Program Files\Citrix
for 5 years.  Everything but the OS is installed on the E: data drive.  

When looking at the 'Registry' table within the .MSI, it seems a some of
these values may be pulling from the registry if they can.  I am
wondering if I can just pre-define the
\HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Install\"Location"="E:\\Program Files\\Citrix\\"
beforehand and it will pull it like it was an upgrade?  Could hurt,
might help  ;)

Partition/Directory


Boy... why do I think that is a REALLY bad idea... I picture it like
trying to change the program files location for exchange or something. I
think it is just reading the progdir variable from the registry and
installing based on that. So two questions:
1- Why change it
2- if you are going to do that why not try and change the Program Files
dir
3- (and this is a comment not a question) I would advise against it.
Citrix is touchy enough about paths and file locations.

Subject: [THIN] MF XPe FR3 Unattended Install Change Partition/Directory

I have been searching for ways to change the install directory for the
Citrix MF XPe FR3 install.  I am using Orca to edit the MFXP001.MSI
file, however, I am not sure which setting to use to point the install
directory to the E:\Program Files\Citrix rather than C:\Program
Files\Citrix  
Within the .MSI I am looking at the 'Directory' table; however, all
references appear to be relative.  I am not sure where 'INSTALLDIR' and
'CTX_MF_INSTALLDIR' are set.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I do not believe this is an option in the unattended.txt.


Thanks,
