Extracting the SMS Installer Download on a Workstation

Extracting the SMS Installer-ISU integrated download (or, just the standard SMS Installer) requires that a SMS site server be present on the network connection. When the extraction intiates is asks for a valid server name and will check to see if its available.

Say, you downloaded SMS Installer from home on a dial-up connection, what do you do then? Wait until you are in the office?

Do this:

On your workstation, change the data value in the following key:

Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftSMSSetup
Data: Type
Data Value: dword:00000001

Usually this is set to 00000004 on a workstation

You can download a compiled exe with the above fix here SMS Installer Reg Key Fix
