  • Hi,

      I am trying to setup auto installation using group policy.  We've been using Group Policy to deploy a custom VB app for years no problem.  When there is a new version, we copy up the MSI and right click the object in MMC and say redeploy.  But now have upgraded to VS 2005 and this is no longer working.  I read the following in



    "Visual Studio 2005 Integration

    Building on the foundation of Windows Installer technology, Visual Studio 2005 includes tools for creating comprehensive and far-reaching installations. That said, you will also find that Visual Studio 2005 does not include all the authoring tools necessary to take full advantage of the capabilities of Windows Installer. Notably absent from the Visual Studio 2005 IDE, for example, is the ability to create Windows Installer 3.0 software update packages.

    Note   For comprehensive Microsoft Windows Installer authoring tools, you should investigate products from third-party vendors, such as InstallShield and Wise."


    So I am wondering if anyone knows of a way - other then 3rd party product - of deploy upgrades via Group Policy?
