Software Installation - How To

How do I use Desktop Central to enter information during the installation of a user-specific software application?

Description

This document provides steps required to use Desktop Central to enter information during the installation of a user-specific software application. For example, if you are installing an e-mail client for each of the users in your network, you will be prompted to create a unique user name and password for individual users when the installation is in progress. You can use the steps given below to complete this task.

Steps

Assume that you have added a package which has an installable file that enables you to be prompted to enter information during the installation of a software application.

To enter information during the installation of a software application, follow the steps given below:

  1. Click the Software Deployment tab
  2. Against the package that you added, click Install/Uninstall Software-User
  3. Enter a name and description for the configuration
  4. Select the following:
    • Installer type: Select the installer type based on the type of package that you have added.
    • EXE package name: The name of the package that you created.
    • Operation type: Install
  5. Note: Do not enter anything in the Run As field.

  6. Make the required deployment settings
  7. Select the required client computers using the Define Target option
  8. Configure the execution settings, if required
  9. Click Deploy

You have configured the settings required to enter information during the installation of a software application. The settings will reflect in the client computers during the agent's 90-minute refresh cycle or during logon—whichever takes place earlier.
