We are also having some issues with their new installer. I have suggested to
III that they have a separate installer for Network Administrators to use.
We have several Citrix locations in which this new installer would not for
them due to the way Citrix works. I have created a "work-a-round" installer
which works really well; however, we have not yet upgraded to Phase 3 on our
main production server because this would most likely be unsupported by III
if we were to have problems. Thus, the suggestion in having a separate
installer created by them that would be supported to meet our needs as well
as others who have a similar setup. I will have to contact III today to
follow-up on this as I have not heard back from them, as usual, on this issue
for several days now.
