Additional Information

Steps to Duplicate:
  1. Load GWTuner from Software Distribution Directory\Admin\Utility\GWTuner .
  2. Proceed ahead by keeping the defaults and it should create a groupwise.mst file in the Software Distribution Directory\Client\Win32 .
  3. From the command prompt, type "MSIEXEC transforms=SoftwareDistributionDirectory\Client\Win32\groupwise.mst /i SoftwareDistributionDirectory\Client\Win32\groupwise.msi ".
  4. Complete the install and click Finish.
  5. Click Start | Settings | Control Panel | Add or Remove Programs.
