Remotely install software over the network. Deploy MSI software on multiple computers without using Group Policy.


Are you looking for a way to streamline and automate software installation? Action1 free tool helps you deploy MSI packages on multiple computers at once with no hassle. With Action1 endpoint management solution, you can remotely install software and updates on Windows workstations and servers. Unlike other tools, Action1 installation utility does not rely on Group Policy - it does not matter if your managed endpoints are in the same domain or LAN.

The free tool from Action1 discovers managed endpoints in real-time and enables you to install programs remotely on multiple Windows machines at once. In the Action1 App Store, you will find most popular software installers, such as web browsers, Abode products, file managers, and online communication apps. All you have to do is select a package to install and specify the endpoints. You can filter the workstations where to install the MSI, for example, install program on Windows 7 computers only. Then choose the best timing to roll out the deployment. Action1 distribution software will handle the remote installation for you and will retry it for the workstations that are currently shut down.

Don't worry if the app you want to deploy is not in our App Store. Action1 deployment and distribution tool enables you to add custom apps to the App Store. Once added, the package will be securely kept in our library and be at your disposal at any time. Creating a new package is fast and simple: add a name, provide a path to UNC or HTTPS location or upload the MSI to Action1 Cloud. Additionally, you can configure service operations, for example, force a computer reboot or run a script. With Action1, you can remotely install software and roll out updates in minutes on your entire fleet of workstations.

Unlike third-party scripts to deploy software over the network, Group Policy install software plugin, psexec msi install or wmic install software tool, Action1 install tool has the following benefits:
  • • Ability to install software on remote computer not connected to corporate network (e.g. a laptop of a traveling employee).
  • • Allows to remotely install MSI to turned off computers at the time when such computers are turned on.
  • • Runs in the cloud and does not require installation of any managing software or dedicated servers in your enterprise network.
  • • Provides a library of most popular installer packages to ensure that silent deployment of applications works correctly.
  • • Does not require managed computers to be members of an Active Directory domain in order for remote deployment to work.
  • • Both installation and uninstallation of software packages is supported on remote computers.
  • • Helps to automate software deployments across all computers of your network.
  • • Includes deploy software remotely free tool with limited functionality.
