I am trying to upload a zipped file containing the contents of the SPSS 20 dvd. The upload never completes; the error is "Upload file cannot be blank". Of course it's not, it's quite large, about 2 GB. Is it not possible to load such a large file? Should I use a bat file network install instead? Thank you.

A batch file located on the network would work just fine. Just keep in mind the target system will need access to that share during the postinstall process.

There is a php limitation that prevents files 2GB+ from being attached. Here is the workaround:

  1. Create your postinstall task and attach a dummy file txt file (the filetype doesn't matter).
  2. Export the the task to the K2000 restore share via the Settings and Maintenance > Package Management tab.
  3. Navigate to \\k2000\restore and find the .PKG file. Open it with 7-zip and you should see another archive. Extract that and navigate through the folder structure until you find a directory called PAYLOAD. Swap the txt file for your large file (the SPSS zip file in your case).
  4. Save the changes to the archive, re-compress, and then import the PKG file back into the K2000 via the Package Management tab.
