I had read somewhere that with the latest versions of the appliances that there was more coordination of tasks. For example I have a Kace1000 script that uninstalls all Reader versions and then installs Foxit. I would like to have the same actionas a post installation tasks.

How can I do that?

Thanks.

  • can you post your k1 script so I can convert them to PO Tasks for you
    • I am not sure how to 'post' my script. There are 2 batch files, each running .msi install packages.

      One is
      AdbeArCleaner_v2.exe /silent /product=1 /cleanlevel=0 /installpath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0" /scanforothers=0 /LogLevel=2

      And the other one is
      msiexec /i "EnterpriseFoxitReader730.0118_enu.msi" /qn /norestart /l*v "%TEMP%\FoxitReader_InstallLog.txt" MAKEDEFAULT=1 LAUNCHCHECKDEFAULT=0 VIEW_IN_BROWSER=1 STARTMENU_SHORTCUT=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=0

      Each bat file is a task in the script in KACE

ok you will need to create 2 different application tasks.  upload the exe or msi to the task and in the "parameter" window put exactly the lines like you posted

AdbeArCleaner_v2.exe /silent /product=1 /cleanlevel=0 /installpath="C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Reader 11.0" /scanforothers=0 /LogLevel=2

msiexec /i "EnterpriseFoxitReader730.0118_enu.msi" /qn /norestart /l*v "%TEMP%\FoxitReader_InstallLog.txt" MAKEDEFAULT=1 LAUNCHCHECKDEFAULT=0 VIEW_IN_BROWSER=1 STARTMENU_SHORTCUT=1 DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=0

check reboot if needed,

  • OK, thanks. For some reason I thought it would be more seamless, like you somehow connected the 2 appliances and could use scripts back and forth.

    I really do appreciate your help.

    Thanks.
    • One of the requests on the User Voice is for better integration of tasks between the appliances (although I can't find it right now). You can also export your resources from the K1000 under Settings, Resources and then import them to the K2000.

if you have it as managed installation in the K1000 you can export it and import it in the K2000 as post install task.
