Scripting Question

How to use K1000 to deploy program with Script

02/06/2015 2980 views
I have a program called Acoustica Mixcraft 7 that I want to deploy to 15 computers in one of our school.  The program has a batch file to launch an unattend installation.  I'm not sure how to go about uploading it to the K1000 and creating a script for it.

Their instructions tell you to edit the .ini file with the registration info so you don't have to register each computer separately and save it along with the batch file and the installer to a network drive, right click the batch file and install the program from there.  How would I go about doing that with Kace?  I'm guessing create a zip with those 3 and upload it to the K1000, but then what?

You need to create a zip file containing all needed files, zip the files up- not a directory, zipping the files in a directory is more work to deploy.

Create a kscript and attach the zip file as a dependency

When deployed Kace will unzip this to the $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR) root
create a launch a program to call the batch file

Won't that run cmd as 32 bit (c:\windows\syswow64\cmd.exe) since the kace client is 32 bit?  How do I run the 64 bit version and have the right working directory?
