Guys

I know how to install / uninstall an applicaiton from my K1000 , but what I want to do is this.

1. Uninstall an app , then

2. Install another app straight after the uninstall.

 

Is there a way to do that as part of the same job ?

Answer Summary:
You can also create a zip file that contains a batch script with the uninstall and install commands. Associate this zip file with the software title being installed and then use the custom install command in the managed install to execute the batch script.

Do it via the Skripting engine. This is the easiest way.

Should be self explaining.

We use a .bat file to accomplish what I belive you are trying to do.  That will work if you are trying to do a Managed install as well.  Zip up the bat file and the files to install / uninstall then upload them to the server and use the Configure Manually install option.  This is how we do it for Managed Installs though.  We haven't gotten to far into the scripting side of things in our shop yet.

You can also use the deploy order within IM and make the uninstaller a lower number than the installation.

  • I also use this for ordering installs like Adobe Reader, Adobe Air, Adobe Flash, Java, etc. When one of our laptops hasn't connected in a while it's nice to know that it will go in order and usually successfully install all titles without causing issues.
