Office 2003 snapin to big?



  • Hello, i want to test the snapin feature. i build like in the video tutorial a snapin file with SFX Maker.

    The Installer.exe is now 377MB. I changed the settings in the php file so i can upload such a big file. But wenn i deploy the snapin i see the Installer.exe is copied in the C:\Program Files\FOG\tmp directory of the target Client. But after ca. 100MB it stops and the Prompt with: “Non 7z archive.”. It seems he want to starts the exe bevore its finished ulpload.

  • [quote=“Blackout, post: 417, member: 1”]The problem is that HTTP POST (the method used currently to upload snapins) was never designed to upload large amounts of data. 2mb is the default, this gives you an idea of the sizes it was originally designed to send.

    The snapin code needs to be updated to use a modern Flash or HTML5 uploader.

    For the time being, you should upload large snapins manually.

    Sorry to jump in on a thread, but you have 99% answered a question I had about large snapins. After getting the file to /opt/fog/snapins
    what do I need to do to make FOG do to see the files ?

    If it’s on the FOG server, then there should be no problems. I dont think it uploaded to the server correctly due to the filesize.

    Have you verified the file uploaded correctly to the FOG server? i.e. go look at the filesize, does it match the original file?

    Can you manually download the file and successfully run it?

    More testing!



  • no what you mean is the upload to the server, what i mean is the upload from the server to the target client where the snapin have to install. i solved the problem with other vmware hardware, there it works great (but i dont know why)…
