Creating SCCM Package for Windows Live Software

If you want to deploy Windows Live products (Writer, MovieMaker, Messenger..)separetely it is not posible because from Microsoft can be dowloaded the package wich contains all products.

Windows live wlsetup-all.exe can be downloaded from here:

If you try to use some tools to extract this exe as WinZIP, WinRAR, 7-zip it will be without success.

The solution will be to install the whole package by default. After that all these files you can find in:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Windows Live\.cache

You just need to search in cache folder.

To make MovieMaker to work you need also to have PhotoLibrary installed. If you want to use Photo Library you should have and MS SQL 2005 Compact Edition.

Add user in "Log on As a Service" with command line

We cannot use GPO to deploy "Log on As a Service" User Assigment Rights because it will modify and overwrite the membership of users or groups. But, we don't want to do that, we just want to add new user without affecting other users or groups.

The solution for this issue is to use Ntrights.exe from Windows Resource Kit.

The right command to add the user or group to "Log on As a Service" is:

ntrights.exe -u user@domain +r SeServiceLogonRight

You can deploy this command with your SCCM and you should include ntrights into the package.
