Intel PROSet Custom MSI Installation

Before I start, can I thank Intel for finally taking out the My Wifi feature and 100's of needless folders from the enterprise installations! Much appreciated.

 

Now to my query...

 

Just downloaded Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Software 14.3.1 for my HP laptops (with 5300 AGN network cards) and I am wanting to create a custom MSI installation so I can deploy this to our customers silently and remotely.

 

From a quick Google, I have found some properties from the version 13 installation, which are added as part of the command line by using "ADDLOCAL=". Can anyone help me match these up to what is in the properties/features table within the MSI?

 

Properties for version 13:

WIFI_Driver

WIFI_Software

WIFI_UI

WIFI_PLC

WIFI_Admin_Toolkit

WIFI_Troubleshooter

 

Features for version 14.3.1:

Intel(R) WiFi Link Driver
Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless for Bluetooth(R) 3.0 + High Speed
Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software
Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility
Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Enterprise Software

 

How would I get a transform file to select what I want to install? Would I add the properties mentioned above into the properties table and set them to true or false depending on my requirements?

 

Would I ammend the features table? That has all these settings mentioned above with either level values of "1" or "101" assigned.

 

Any help is appreciated.

 

Thanks.

    I've managed to solve it myself, no real documentation anywhere on the net for this...

     

    FYI, this is an extract of the feature table from Intel PROSet Wireless.msi:

    The key here is the Level column. If the value is 1, it is installed. If the value is 101, it is not installed.

     

    To satisfy my needs, I changed the value of WIFI_PROSet to 1 so it installed the Enterprise software.

     

    Here are the properties and what feature they relate to:

     

    WIFI_DriverIntel(R) WiFi Link Driver
    WIFI_BTHS & WIFI_BTHS_x86Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless for Bluetooth(R) 3.0 + High Speed
    WIFI_SoftwareIntel(R) PROSet/Wireless WiFi Software
    WIFI_UIIntel(R) PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility
    WIFI_PROSetIntel(R) PROSet/Wireless Enterprise Software
    WIFI_Admin_ToolkitAdministrator Toolkit

     

    Finally I created an install package for the profiles and settings using the administrator toolkit and deployed that after the install and voila!

     

    Now I need to worry about our wifi infrastructure
