Archives and File Groups in the App-V Scripts Folder

Archives and File Groups in the App-V Scripts Folder
Sometimes it is necessary to be able to place whole file groups, directories or developer folders in the “Scripts” folder within an App-V package. These could then, for example, be copied via the AddPackage trigger prior to the start of the application during the installation of the package onto the computer. This blog shows a possibility for doing so using a VBS script as a basis, which triggers the installation and unpacks the archive.
The file group is compressed with the installation script in the archive and decompressed with a special VB script in the Scripts directory. The VB script additionally executes the actual installer for the archive group. Copy commands or installation instructions for MSI packages can be contained here, for example if a driver via a developer package should be installed.

Nick-IT ClearType Tools and DesktopRefresh

Nick-IT ClearType Tools and DesktopRefresh

ClearType is the antialiasing for all characters in Windows, which improves the legibility of text on monitors. The basis for this is the Windows application Cttune.exe. By starting this application the user initiates a workflow process in order to adapt the symbols for optimal display on his or her monitor. Unfortunately this very process is sometimes problematic. On one hand I like to disable the ClearType function for certain Terminal server users upon registration. On the other hand the user sometimes wants to avoid the workflow. Sometimes the users themselves can feel overwhelmed by the workflow. To address this we have written three small tools that allow for the enabling and disabling of the ClearType function by the push of a button. At the end of this article is a download for this tool collection, in both ZIP and MSI.
