I originally created this VSA as version 8.5.5 but was able to easily apply the patches to create 9.5

Turbo Tax 2007 Premier: Started on Media XP version OS. I tried using Turbo Tax CD directly. It tried loading .NET 2.0. When completed the install, I tried to launch it. It kept giving error for C++ component. Then I tried to install .NET Framework 3.5 directly on OS. Created new layer in SVS. Installed Turbo Tax again. It worked like charm.

--SJones: I was also successful with TurboTax Home & Business on XP Pro. All major .NET versions were already pre-installed in the base (which is recommended best practice with SVS). Single Program Capture on the setup from product CD root.

System Used: HP Home Media PC OS: Windows XP Media PC

When inserting the TurboTax CD, decline the autorun to install the application. Deactivate all layers. Initiate a program capture (non-global) pointing to the cd drive's root program SETUP.EXE. Follow the prompts.

The tricky part (that I have figured out yet) is how to launch the Update program (which downloads a ton of application stuff) as the update program is in the layer itself.

So I just activated and ran Update. It is putting all the updates and state forms into the writeable layer which will get wiped if I have to reset the layer (bummer!).

Also ran ExcludeGen to exclude all registered files. It didn't find any which is surprising as I thought that TurboTax has a .TAX extention to its files. I did end up creating a directory exclude for [PERSONAL] with all subdirectories so my tax files wouldn't end up in the layer once I delete it to do 2008's taxes.

Capture hints: Don't capture .net 2.0 It is included with the prerequisites install. I installed .net before starting the capture. You will have to install the prerequisites manually from the CD. I did Java first, then reporting services. Then I did the main install( core products).
Also remember to check your clients for .net 2.0 before you install the svs layer. I tried including it in the SVS package, but it didn't work.
