how do I create exclusions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Aaron Parker created a guide for sequencing Mozilla 7, I do not understand how to do the following: I have a vanilla Windows 7 virtual PC, with Seq 4.6 SP1 ready to go, but I do not understand how to do the following

    Sequencer Configuration

    Before Sequencing, add the following exclusions:

    • %CSIDL_APPDATA%\Mozilla
    • %CSIDL_COMMON_APPDATA%\Microsoft\RAC
    • \REGISTRY\USER\%SFT_SID%\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

    If you are adding Adobe Flash Player to the package, add these exclusions as well:

    • %CSIDL_APPDATA%\Adobe
    • %CSIDL_APPDATA%\Macromedia
    • %CSIDL_WINDOWS%\Installer

  • Tools / Options / Exclusions, or use a Sequencer Template. This should be documented in the Sequencer help.

  • Thank you so much for your time. At this point do I add this to the local computer directory while the sequencer is still open before I create the package or do I create and edit it? In other words where exactly and when am I adding these files below?   

    • After installing Firefox, copyuser.jsto%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile
    • CopyuserChrome.cssto%ProgramFiles%\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\profile\chrome

    Again thanks
