UltraEdit Rollout

The Ultraedit Part

Ultraedit has it's own rollout mechanism. What we want is a silent installation, and that end users are not bugged with registration and update issues. We just want them to start working. To create a silent installation, you basically perform a manual installation, register the product, copy some files, make some registry changes and set them all up in a source installation directory:

  1. Perform your manual installation
  2. Start the installation and register your version
  3. Copy these files to the source installation directory:
    1. ueinstall.sss
    2. uedit32.reg
  4. Rename ueinstall.sss to the name of the installation file, for example uesetup.sss.
  5. Now go into the registry and export these settings, if they don't match add the missing values before you export:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit]
    "Query User For Updates"=dword:00000001
    "Display Ad"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IDM Computer Solutions\UltraEdit\Locks]
    "Updates"=dword:00000001

    Note that v13 is the last version of Ultraedit that supports these registry settings. Starting with version v14 these settings are in an .ini file. The updates lock part is to prevent your end users for checking for updates. This setting will grey out the “Check for Updates” menu option.

The ZENworks Part

Create a simple application pointing to the uesetup.exe file in the source installation directory. Make the following changes: Parameters:
ultraedit-parameters.jpg
Registry import:
ultraedit-registry.jpg
You're done now, at least when you renamed the ueinstall.sss file correctly so the installation settings are copied automatically when using the /s parameter. Of course, to fancy things up you should make a nice icon for the installation in the NAL, make it show up in the correct folder and make sure only the licensed users receive the installation in their NAL.
