  • I even tryed capturing but after capturing the main application is working fine but the captured msi is not installing the printer drives.

    Actually when i install the given media (exe) it makes two entries in ARP one is the main application Smartdraw 2013 and the other is Nova pdf printer drivers.

    So finally i felt capturing is not an solution.
