CorelDraw Technical Suite X6 Deployment Guide Appendix Part 2


Repairing, modifying, or removing
XVL Studio 3 D Corel Edition can be repaired, modified, or removed by using the XVL Studio 3D Corel Edition entry in the Add or remove programs dialog box of the Windows Control Panel.
XVLPlayer can be repaired, modified, or removed by using the XVL Player / XVL Player Pro (Ver. 9 or later) entry in the Add or remove programs dialog box of the Windows Control Panel.
If you want to silently remove CorelDRAW Technical Suite X6 but not XVL Studio 3 D Corel Edition and XVL Player, you must use the following command line:
Setup.exe /x DO_NOT_REMOVE_XVL=1
Deploying customized workspaces
The software installs a selection of workspaces for use in Corel DESIGNER, CorelDRAW, and Corel PHOTO-PAINT. However, the software also lets you create and deploy customized workspaces.
Understanding workspaces
Information about the layout of a workspace is saved to XML files.
One way to customize a workspace is to manually edit its XML files. However, the easiest way is to design the workspace from within the program; in doing so, updated XML files are automatically generated.
Image location
The server image stores the default XML files for each workspace at the following locations:

  • cdts16\ProgramFiles\Corel\CorelDRAWTechnicalSuiteX6\ ProgramName\Workspacelocation for the 32-bit version of the software
  • cdts16\ProgramFiles 64\Corel\CorelDRAWTechnicalSuiteX6\ ProgramName\Workspacelocation for the 64-bit version of the software

Installed location
When the software is deployed from the server image to the workstations, the workspace XML files are copied to one of the following locations (where X: is the drive where the software is installed):

  • X:\ProgramFiles\Corel\CorelDRAWTechnicalSuiteX6\ ProgramName\Workspace
  • X:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Corel\CorelDRAWTechnicalSuiteX6\ ProgramName\Workspace

If a workstation user customizes a program workspace, the XML files for that workspace are copied to the users profile, updated to reflect the workspace changes, and used to re-create the customized workspace whenever that user runs the application. The default workspaces deployed from the server image to the workstations remain untouched at their installed locations.
Understanding the workspace XML files
The workspace XML files contain the following main tags.
XML tag
applicationInfo
Identifies the program

commandBars
Defines the content of all menus, all toolbars, and the status bar

frame
Defines the layout of the program window

items
Defines the items that appear in the menus and toolbars

customizationList
Defines all customizable items on the command bars. NOTE: Changes must be made within the XML file, not the program.

shortcutKeyTables
Defines all shortcut keys and associated items

The XML entries contain Globally Unique Identifiers (GUIDs), which are used to identify various user-interface objects in the system. For example, a command bar contains a list of items, each with its own GUID:

  • If the item order is changed, the entries are simply reordered.
  • If an item is added, a new item entry with a GUID is added.

Working with MSI files
Stored in the Setup folder on the installation disc, the main Microsoft
Windows Installer (MSI) file for the setup\x86\CDTS16\Setup.msi (for 32-bit installations) or \x64\CDTS16\Setup_x64.msi (for 64-bit installations)contains a database of all features, registry keys, folders, and shortcuts for the software.
The server image contains a copy of the main setup MSI filethe MSI tables within which you can modify for deployment to the workstations.
Various components of the software are stored in additional MSI files. Some of these MSI files are required by the setup, while others represent optional features of the software.
You can exclude optional MSI files from the setup by creating a customized server image. Excluding an MSI file prevents the corresponding feature from being installed.

Setup files
Besides Setup.msi, the setup requires additional MSI files to carry out the installation. These required MSI files include the following:

  • x86\ICA.msi or x64\ICA_64.msi
  • x86\CDTS16\ShellExt.msi or x64\CDTS16\ShellExt.msi

Language modules
The setup requires at least one language module, MSI files for which are stored at x86\CDTS16 (32-bit) or x64\CDTS16 (64-bit) on the installation disc. Corel DESIGNER, XVLStudio3 DCorel Edition, and XVL Player support only German, English, and French. However, some versions of CorelDRAW Technical SuiteX6 may include additional language modules for the remaining components (CorelDRAW, Corel PHOTO-PAINT, and Corel CONNECT). The following table lists all language modules that the software may contain.

CDTS_VSTA_x64.msi (64-bit)


Working with MST files
If you want to apply a Microsoft transformation (MST) file to the setup, simply apply it to your command line.
By default, MST files are applied to the Setup.msi file for the setup.
To apply a transformation to the setup

  1. Store the MST file on the server image.
  2. Use the TRANSFORMS property to specify that MST file, as shown here (where MST is the filename of the MST file):

Setup.exe TRANSFORMS="MST"
If the MST file is not in the same folder as Setup.exe, MST must specify the full path and filename of the MST file.

Applying a transformation to a specific MSI file
To apply an MST file to a specific MSI file, use the following syntax (where MSI is the filename of the MSI file, not including its extension; and where MST is the filename of the MST file, including its extension):
Setup.exe TRANSFORMS_MSI="MST"
If the MST file is not in the same folder as the MSI file, MST must specify the full path and filename of the MST file.

Example 1To apply my_draw.mst to Draw.msi (in the same folder), use the following syntax:
Setup.exe TRANSFORMS_Draw="my_draw.mst"

Example 2To apply MyTransform.mst to PHOTO-PAINT.msi (in the same folder), use the following syntax:
Setup.exe TRANSFORMS_PHOTO-PAINT="MyTransform.mst"

Troubleshooting MST files
If you have trouble applying an MST file, do the following:

  • Check the syntax of your command linein particular, the path to the MST file.
  • Check your permissions.
  • Make sure that the MST file was created correctly.
  • Check the associated MSI files.

For additional help with MST files, contact Corel Support Services
(www.corel.com/support). Please note, however, that charges will apply.
