How do you handle maintain monthly third party installs?
I am sure everyone deals with updating third party tools on some schedule. By third party tools, I am referring to Adobe Reader, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Oracle Java, Video VLC, etc. How do you handle the monthly download, testing, and packaging of these tools? At UserKon 2018, I learned of Ketarin, which has helped streamline the process, instead of needing to each product's website. With the use of Ketarin, I have the downloads going into each of their own folders and then a PowerShell script that calls a silent install script for each software title. After double-checking that everything works will on a test VM, I package the directory into a zip that is uploaded to the K2000 (SDA).
What is your process? Is there an easier way to automate this? Is there a better tool (for free or for cost)?
