Deployment Tip Summary
This is for the silent install of the Lenovo Thinkpad Tablet Button Driver II, used for the functionality of the buttons in the bezel under the monitor of the X220 & X230. For the most part, follow instructions on http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles/7wgl13ww.txt - Extract files from downloaded executable (7wgl13ww.exe) onto accessible network folder. Create a batch file (i.e., installbutton.cmd) with the switches exactly as Lenovo set in their help file & put inside the same network folder. Send the contents (select the files, not the folder) of this network directory folder to a single zipped file. Upload the ZIP file to the software inventory item "ThinkPad Tablet Button Driver" inside of Kace. Then create a Managed installation to have a "configure manually" installation with the command equal to your batch file name (e.g., installbutton.cmd). Kace is going to unzip the files onto the client machine and run this batch file locally. For some reason, running locally on the client is the only way the silent installation will work for this driver. Make sure to set the installation to delete the downloaded files. An important part of this installation is that the client computer be restarted to complete the process. Either write the restart into your batch file OR add in a Custom Post-install message such as: "The Tablet Button driver has been downloaded onto your computer. At your earliest convenience, please RESTART your computer to complete the installation of the driver." The batch file should contain the following, which calls on the LOCALLY extracted setup file to install silently and waits til the installation is complete before Kace recognizes the batch file as being finished: ************ @echo off "%~dp0setup.exe" -s -SMS exit 0 ******
