The server problems seem to be pervasive and frequent ... that is well documented.

Here's hoping for a warm and stable SETI for the new year ...
2) Message boards : Number crunching : Help Editing the Install File Using ORCA/MSI Editor (Message 222603)

referring to http://boinc.berkeley.edu/win_install.php

and particularly .... "Using Microsoft ORCA, or some other MSI packaging tool, create an MSI Transform that contains the account_*.xml files of the projects you have already attached to on another machine plus the following parameters: "

I downloaded ORCA and it just isn't intuitive to me what needs to be done ... can someone offer detailed assistance ...

Here is what I have managed to do ... I have added the XML's for my projects. (3 entries for each type of install) ... I added the parameters.

At this point, I can run the MSI manually (MSIEXEC /i special.msi /qn ) without parameters and it installs the client as a service ...

I added this MSI into the install section of Active Directory and it just doesn't work ...

What am I missing ... what is a transform and how does one construct it ... is it possible that someone could send me a successful transform that I can reconfigure ??

Thanks

Thanks

Um, mondobyte, you DO realize that you are off into the developer section of the site? This is telling you how to CREATE a version of BOINC. If you're truly trying to do this, then this question needs to be posted on the appropriate developer mailing list.


Thanks for letting me know this ... I'll post in another area....

Thanks again
