description

Have you thought of using PSExec or one of the alternatives for remote installation.

You can install software using a local admin workstation login and by also using s share on a server (domain username and password) you can install software remotely and quickly.

We do make use of PSExec in several cases. In one scenario, for example, we use PSExec to install MSIs to a set of virtual test machines from within our TFS build scripts.

However, the intent of Install Partner is not to (necessarily) install applications on remote machines but rather to provide a simple interface that allows me to easily select one or more applications to be installed on the "local" machine. For example, when we re-image our development machines (or any machine for that matter) it only lays down the bits for the OS and Microsoft Office. We then have to manually install all the development tools necessary for the projects our team is responsible for. This typically involves anywhere between 10 and 20 installs. By using Install Partner, I can select a pre-defined profile, click "Install" and walk away. When I get back, all applications have been installed - and in the correct order.

OK, after re-reading your question, are you requesting that Install Partner be modified to make use of PSExec (for example to install on remote machines) or were you suggesting that PSExec be used instead of Install Partner?
