Silently install EXE-packaged software from the Cloud on multiple remote computers without using Group Policy |
If you are looking for a script to install .exe silently on
multiple computers without deploying exe via GPO (after converting exe to msi
for GPO), Action1 can help. Use this free cloud-based tool to perform silent
installations of exe without any hassles of Group Policy, command line tools
line WMIC or using any silent install exe batch files.
This action launches installation of a generic software package
to install EXE software. The package is specified by either a UNC path (such a
\server\distrib\package.exe) or URL (such as http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-full).
The Wait Time parameter controls how many seconds to wait for
installation completion before displaying results. The installation is
performed under a Local System account you have specify certain parameters to
make sure it runs in quiet mode without showing any user prompts (such as
/silent or /quiet). For package-specific parameters that enable quiet mode,
download URLs and other technical information, you can refer to IT
Ninja Software Library or just Google for "packagename quiet
install switches". Example of switches for Skype: "/VERYSILENT /SP-
/NOCANCEL /NORESTART /SUPPRESSMSGBOXES /NOLAUNCH"
For installation of MSI packages, please use another
action called "Install Software Remotely (MSI Package)".
