In the past, I have installed InfoMaker 4 & 5 on the network and have
gotten both versions to operate seemlessly on multiple client 3.51 NT
workstations. No matter what I do, I can't get 6.0 to run off the
network install. Does anyone have any ideas?

Hi Jack,

I just found out that Sybase does not have any more IM5 so I have to
upgrade to IM6. We install IM4.0.06 from a 16-bit network thru Winstall
program. Im5 was not compatible with the 16-bit network so we never made it
to the users. (Took 2 years to get the NT servers going)
It required much tweeking to get the Icons, collors sets, and to drop the
Forms, Database, and Pipeline Painters. But tyhe IM4 install has worked for
2.5 years now.

I am now reviewing IM6 on my local P/C and I don't see anything about
network installing. I think Sybase does not test these types of setup's
before they ship. I am very discussed with Sybase's handling of IM 4 to 6.
So back to your problem. At this time I am consitering just doing the
silient install from a network storage to the local drive. No baby sitting
the users; they handle they own menus, colores, and the optional painters
are logon sensitive.
IM does run a bit faster when local. Also Oracle SQL*NET 32-bit type
software must be installed like this, network to local.
I do not see any way to de-select the Forms, Database, and Pipeline
Painters. Is there more that one version of IM for Windows?
