You can automatically populate the Vidyo Extension for Microsoft Outlook Server Address and User Name fields so that you or other users don’t have to enter them when they use the Extension.

To do this, you add the parameters to a .mst file, which is read by the Microsoft Windows installer when running the Vidyo Extension for Microsoft Outlook installation.

In order to generate a .mst file, you must use a tool called ORCA.

 

To pre-populate the Server Address and User Name fields:

  1. Install ORCA.

  2. Copy the .msi file to a local folder and open it with ORCA.

    The .msi is generated as a part of the Vidyo Extension for Microsoft Outlook build process and should be available in the release folder.

  3. Create a new transform:

    • Click on Properties in the list of tables on the right-hand side.

      You will see all the properties that are already programmed as well as the custom secure properties that can be programmed externally. The properties that are in capital letters are public properties and can be modified.

    • Right-click in the Property/Value section and select Add Row.

    • Insert the property and value:

      • Use ‘Server’ (string type value) to pre-populate the VidyoPortal URL in the Server Address field.
      • Use ‘useSystemUser’ (integer type value) to pre-populate the User Name field.
        If ‘useSystemUser’ = 1, the Windows user name is used to pre-populate the User Name field. If ‘userSystemUser’ = 0, “UserName” (string type value) is used to pre-populate the User Name.

    • When you finish making all the required changes to the properties, select Transform > Generate Transform.

      This creates a .mst file.

    • Save the .mst file.

  4. Execute the .msi with the transforms by running the following through a command line or in a batch script:

    msiexec /i path_to_the_msi_folder\Vidyo_Extension_for_Microsoft_Outlook_XXXXX.msi TRANS-FORMS=path_to_the_mst_folder\XXXXXXX.mst
