    Steps to sequence the application:

    <Step1> Package Configuration Wizard

    Title Information

    <Step2>Begin sequencing

    ·         If sequencing on a windows vista machine run DhtmlEd.msi (found in install folder).

    ·         If sequencing on XP run  EpiInfoSetup3_5_1_0008.exe

    ·         Move install location to  Q:\epiinf35.v01\

    ·         Keep all default features

    ·         Within this folder delete all icons except “Epi info”.

    ·         Because App-V hasn’t recognized the shortcuts, you need to re-map them from  Q:\epiinf35.v01

    ·         Right click  EpiInfo.exe and create a shortcut to it

    ·         Then you can rename to Epi Info 3.5 them and delete the old one.

    ·         Make sure you open all applications from this new shortcut as it triggers an .MSI

    ·         From within the application menu, you can open all sub apps including utilities.
