Version: ZENworks for Desktops 3.2

We asked the folks who deliver the ZENworks for Desktops 3 Advanced Technical Training (ATT) if they could share a few exclusive tips with us from the training they present, and they graciously agreed, and sent us several goodies like this.

Added to ZENworks for Desktops 3.2 is the ability to add an extra registry key for MSI install debugging:

  1. Create the DWORD value "MSI" and give it the value of "1" underneath HKLM\Software\Netware\NAL\1.0\Debug (create the Debug key)
  2. Try the install of the MSI NAL object.
  3. View the ZAPPMSI.LOG file in c:\%windir\temp (winnt\temp or windows\temp)

If you want to get on the inside track, sign up for ZENworks for Desktops v3 Advanced Technical Training. Select a city near you....
