    Issues with Intel ProSet 14.1

    kunista

      We are trying to upgrade intel ProSet Wireless Software 12.4 to 14.1 for Windows XP machines. To lower user impact we want  to do it when no user is logged on via sms 2003, but Intel Pro Set logs in as a default user after installation is complete. It also messes up all default user settings(background for example). Is there a way to deploy Intel ProSet 14.1 when no user is logged on without any issues?

          Hi Roman,

           

          In an effort to better assist you with your inquiry, can you provide more detailed information?

           

          How exactly are you trying to push the updates to the systems?

           

          Where you mention "Is there a way to deploy Intel ProSet 14.1 when no user is logged on without any issues?", you mean a way on doing silent installs while the users are not logged?

           

          Any other hint might give us a chance to help on this matter.

           

          Cheers!

            Hi,

             

            I am pushing it via SMS (Microsoft Systems Management Server 2003) silently while the users are not logged on. I noticed that after the push laptop logs in as a default user. It occurs only for laptops with the following wireless cards:

            Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300
            Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100
            Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945

             

            I also tested it on a laptop with Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN wireless card and it worked just fine.

             

            Although I am able to deploy it when user is logged on, I want to lower the user impact by installing it when no one is loggged on.

             

            Thank you,

              Hi,

               

              Can you tell me what Operating Systems you are using on these systems?

               

              Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300
              Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100
              Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945
              Intel(R) Centrino(R) Advanced-N 6200 AGN

               

              Cheers!

               

              *PS, forgot to ask, how many systems you got with the same scenario?

                Hi,

                 

                They are all Windows XP. Right now we are planning to deploy it only to 200 machines(which already have Intel ProSet 12.4) with these wireless cards:

                Intel(R) WiFi Link 5300
                Intel(R) WiFi Link 5100
                Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945

                 

                After that deployment we will need to deploy it to another 300 laptops with different intel wireless cards.

                 

                For testing purposes I am using 3 machines:

                Dell Vostro 1700

                Dell Vostro 3700

                Dell Latitude E6410

                 

                Thank you,

                  Hi,

                   

                  In this case we can suggest trying the parameters from the following links for Silent Installs. There's plenty of install instructions on those links.

                   

                  Silent installation of wireless drivers and PROSet version 12.x

                  http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-030736.htm

                   

                  Silent installation of wireless drivers and PROSet version 13.x

                  http://www.intel.com/support/wireless/wlan/sb/CS-031852.htm

                   

                  Now, the second link should also apply for PROSet 14.x as well.

                   

                  Cheers!

                    I am already using this parameters. You can dismiss this case, because we will have to deploy it using the old school(run it manually on each laptop). Thanks for all your help:)
