Below is what I use to deploy DT4 over AD with a GPO. Copy'n'paste the lines between the "---" to a cmd-file and add it to a GPO.
Change the admin-shares as appropriate. The automated install will require a reboot, as it first installs the driver and then the actual software. No big deal though as a windows-machine is rebooted every so often.
The silent install of DT4 is somewhat crippled and doesn't allow for choosing *not* to install the adware Savenow. The manual install does however. Symantec Antivirus Corp Ed v10.5 (which we run at our department) however is able to automatically remove it upon install, so no real need to worry about it. Running the condition test for "SetupDTSB.exe" makes sure the adware is removed immediately upon install, should your antivirus software not be able to remove the adware by itself.
The two last lines deals with removing the desktop shortcuts that get created automatically. Again the silent install is crippled... 8-(
The script has been tested and works on WinXP SP2, WinXP SP2 x64 and Win2k SP4. It has not been tested on Win2k3, as I prefer to do manual installs on those. There's no reason it shouldn't work on Win2k3 as well. YMMV. 8-)
"\\domain.local\dfs\MSI\Daemon Tools\SPTDinst-v142-x86.exe" add /q
"\\domain.local\dfs\MSI\Daemon Tools\daemon408-x86.exe" /S /D=%ProgramFiles%\DAEMON Tools
if exist "%ProgramFiles%\DAEMON Tools\SetupDTSB.exe" goto delete else goto icon
del "%ProgramFiles%\DAEMON Tools\SetupDTSB.exe" /F /Q
if exist "%allusersprofile%\desktop\DAEMON Tools.lnk" goto delete2 else goto end
del "%allusersprofile%\desktop\DAEMON Tools.lnk" /F /Q
Make sure the install-lines are one line each. The view on the web might split them. All lines are single lines!
The 3rd party software ("WhenU") gets nuked by Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition v10.x upon install; it's identified as "malware". I assume this is true with other AV-solutions as well, so no need to specifically remove the 3rd party software.
First install SPTD-Driver
sptdinst-x86.exe add /q
- download at http://disk-tools.com/download/sptd
- for Daemon Tools 4.08 you should use SPTD V1.38
Second install Daemon Tools
daemon408-x86.exe /S /D=F:\Some Folder- Note that no quotes must be used in installation path even if name has spaces.
Installing in this method will also install the third party software. I have not identified a way to install Daemon Tools 4.x without the third party applications.
for silent install with sptd driver but without gadget
DTLite4454-0315.exe /S /nogadget /sptd
(sptd install is not completely silent)
Then modify registry to deactivate mountspace statistic:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DT Soft\DAEMON Tools Pro\Config]
to hide the mountspace sidebar:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DT Soft\DAEMON Tools Pro\Options]
