    Intel PROSet Custom MSI Installation

    TheMagic89

      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_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
