Software Deployment Question

How do I send out software?

03/23/2016 661 views

I am looking at pushing out a software program to a user through K1000. The software is the Sharepoint Designer 2010. I need to know how to upload it to KACE and how to set up the script to get it to run and install. Is there anyone that knows how this is supposed to go?

Is it installed already in your environment?  

If so, go to Inventory and select Software.  
In the search list, enter in the software name hit enter.
Then, Select the software title and under where it says Upload and Associate File, click browse and upload the file.
When you want to deploy the file use managed Installs with the correct switches you are looking to use for the application.  We don't use Sharepoint so I'm not much help there but that should get you 90% of the way there.

  • Thank you. This is what I was looking for. I appreciate your help with this.
  • If the software doesn't show up when I search for it is there a way to upload it still and have it work?
    • It needs to be in your environment for it to show up. Install on one machine manually and then it will show up.
      • Ok I have it installed on my machine. But it's not picking it up.

This is basic K1000 stuff. Did you have Jump Start training? Do you or your organization have that training on the books? If so, schedule that. 

Also, read the Administrator's Guide

Check the archived training videos.

  • We did have the training but I am a hands on learner so watching someone do it didn't help me remember the steps.
  • I'm pretty sure he was looking for someone to explain to him how to do it. Not looking for a lecture.
