    Installing PaperPort Pro 9 Office 9 using Windows 2000 Server with Active Directory

    You can utilize Active Directory in a Windows 2000 network. Within the Active Directory structure, a management component named Group Policy Objects uses the Software Installation and Maintenance function to manage network software installations.

    PaperPort 9 supports the Assign to Computers installation only. It does not support Publish to Users or Assigned to Users.

    To install PaperPort Pro 9 Office using Windows 2000 Server with Active Directory:

    1. Create a software distribution point for the Windows Installer (MSI) application:

    a. Create a shared network folder on a server and or in a Distributed File System.

    b. Copy in the contents of the PaperPort Pro 9 Office CD.

    1. Open Administrative Tools\Active Directory Users and Computers, select the object, then a domain, site, or organization unit, and create a Group Policy Object:

    a. Right-click the domain or the selected container.

    b. Select Properties, click the Group Policy tab, select New, and then name the new policy.

    c. Close the Active Directory Users and Computers dialog box.

    1. Use Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to open the new Group Policy Object:

    a. In the Run command dialog box, type mmc to open Console1.

    b. Navigate to Console\Add\Remove Snap-in, click the Add button, and then select Group Policy from the menu list.

    c. Select the Group Policy Object that was just created.

    1. Configure the new Group Policy Object to install PaperPort:

    a. Under the console root\Group Policy , select Computer Configuration, Software Settings, right-click Software Installation, select New, and then Package.

    Note: InstallShield’s ISScript8.msi is required to install PaperPort Pro 9 Office. You can install ISScript8.msi as the first software installation package.

    b. Browse to the shared network folder that contains the PaperPort Pro 9 Office CD files, and select ISScript8.msi and Paperport 9.0.msi for their respective packages.

    The PaperPort properties dialog box opens. In the General tab, PaperPort 9 will be listed under Name.

    c. In the Deployment tab, under Deployment Type, select Assigned, and under Installation User Interface Option, check to make sure that Basic is selected.

    d. Close the dialog box, and then select Software Installation.

    The settings for the installation package will be displayed on the right side of the screen, and PaperPort will be installed to the targeted client systems upon their restart.

    The installation is a "silent install" and is installed for all users on that computer.

    Deploying PaperPort Pro 9 Office from an SMS Server

    Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS) supports all versions of Windows, but is limited to Windows 98, NT 4.0, ME, 2000, and XP when installing products such as PaperPort Pro 9 Office that use Microsoft Windows Installer (MSI) technology.

    PaperPort 9 supports the per-System configuration, running SMS 2.0 with Service Pack 4.

    To install PaperPort 9 with SMS, you need to configure and make these separate packages:


    Paperport 9.0.msi

    Paperport Printer Driver.msi

    DocuCom PDF Driver.msi

    DocuCom PDF Core Library.msi

    Although you need to make each package, you can embed the ISScript8.msi program within the Paperport 9.0 msi package if desired.

    1. Use the Windows Installer administrative (/a) command line option to prepare a PaperPort Administrative Installation:

    msiexec.exe /a "paperport 9.0.msi"

    Note that this is the only MSI package that requires an administrative install.

    1. Configure the command line for each program within SMS, using the following examples.

    Note that Paperport 9.0.msi, DocuCom PDF Driver.msi, and DocuCom PDF Core Library.msi each require an install path. In addition, the last program requires a Restart if run on Windows 98 SE, Windows NT 4.0, or Windows ME.

    msiexec.exe /i isscript8.msi /q

    Paperport 9.0.msi
    msiexec.exe /i "paperport 9.0.msi" /q ALLUSERS="1" INSTALLDIR="c:\program files\Scansoft\Paperport"

    Paperport Printer Driver.msi
    msiexec.exe /i "paperport printer driver.msi" /q ALLUSERS="1"

    DocuCom PDF Driver.msi
    msiexec.exe /i "docucom PDF driver.msi" /q ALLUSERS="1" INSTALLDIR="c:\program files\Scansoft\Paperport"

    DocuCom PDF Core Library.msi
    msiexec.exe /i "docucom PDF core library.msi" /q ALLUSERS="1" TARGETDIR="c:\program files\Scansoft\Paperport"

    You can now advertise the packages to your SMS clients.
