Repackaging Tips

Typical Configuration Items

The installer does not allow for setting of what they consider to be user options. To silently set those, the program may be run with command line arguments. For example: "C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe" -disable-update-notification -uninstall-quick-launch-shortcut

The settings are under %APPDATA%\Everything\Everything.ini and may be used as a preconfig file.

This identifies the most commonly interesting configuration items in the application.

There are a lot of options on how this product is configured and used in the enterprise, including the possibility of organizing the data through an external server. Beyond the simple things covered above, other options will be customer specific.
The app adds a Run key to start the app up in the background in order to speed up getting results when the user launches the app. This may not be wanted.

Installed Components worth noting
The application install may be limited to one shortcut.
The application has an optional Protocol handler and optional service. The service seems to avoid the need for elevation of the app so you probably want that in an enterprise environment.
The application uses the AppData Roaming folder for storage by default.
