Hey Guys,

I have SCCM 07 configured in a VM environment with ten machines. I just started using SCCM a day ago so i'm still have a lot to learn. I have successfully installed SCCM on all the client VM machines. I have created a custom install program that installs adobe reader X. My custom install is called install.exe this program calls the reader .msi file and performs a silient install of that file. It works fine when a manually run install.exe. I was wondering if anyone could explain how I could push this through SCCM.

Thanks,

Justin

in broad lines

1) create a package in SCCM, pointing it to the installation sources, and in the package create an install program (you may have already done this?)
2) assign Distribution Points to your package so the contents get synched.
3) create a Collection containing the objects (users/computers) that are allowed to receive the package.
4) create an Advertisement for the distribution, linking the package you created to the collection, decide whether the Adverisement is mandatory (installation enforced) or not (users have to go to the "Run Advertised Programs" dialog in Windows and select to install the program)

Undoubtedly more detailed info can be found on Microsoft's Technet or MSDN

Rgds,

I got it working fine! Advertisement come up and all and installs reader when they run it. One more question how can i push this package automatically without any advertisement or user knowledge of it being run.

Thanks i figured out how to make it mandatory but on the client side there is still a popup that says software will be installed in 5 minutes and it does install it fine, but i would like a completely silient install with no popups or anything on clients computers.

when you select the properties of the advertisement for the application, there's an 'Interaction' tab that gives you the settings controlling this behaviour.

Im assuming just set the count down minutes to 0 and nothing will be displayed?

Within your software Package's Program's settings, under the Advanced tab, you may want to check the box labeled "Suppress program notifications"...
