Answered: Is it possible to do a K1000 managed installation as a user and not as system?

the installation does not require admin rights and saves a file in the path %userprofile% ...

the normal distribution works, until the entry in path %userprofile%

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

The MI itself works as system, this is how it is configured and meant.

But you have two different options:
1. create a script, upload the file and run as user as you like it
2. use the MI with runas, but this may have additional flaws.

  • I was hoped, I would not have to make a script ;) - TCVertrieb 2 years ago
  • is there somewhere a "how to installing software by script" - TCVertrieb 2 years ago
    • well it is simply the same. You upload the payload and run the msiexec or the exe or whatever. - Nico_K 2 years ago
      • If you have already created many scripts, that may be the case.
        As a script-rookie, it's pretty confusing for me. on_verify_success, on_remediation_success and so on.
        Now I have a working script that checks if the process is running. - TCVertrieb 2 years ago
      • You can review https://support.quest.com/kb/238813 for a basic how to.
        Usually the scripting module is part of the jumpstart/quickstart program.

        You simply add the software as Dependency.
        Then you add one or more tasks. These tasks are running individually without any interference from any other (except you want this)

        Then on verify you add all things which you want to test before the installation.
        Depending on the results (like: is a file or directory avaiable etc) you have two possibilities:
        1. On Success. It worked, so you fill in here all steps you need to run (like unzip, run a command etc)
        2. Remediation. This is only triggered if Verify has a failure. This means, if you don't want to have something happening after a failure, ignore this and the other two steps. In any other case you can run here stuff for fix the issue. Like upload log file or similar
        3. On Remeditation Success. If the 2. has fixed the issue, these parts are running.
        4. On Remeditation Failure. If 2. failed, these parts are running.

I can understand you beeing confused by the script thing. If you just want to run your script you have ready without bothering with the "ifs" and "whens" in the scripting engine just drop your script into "on success" and leave all the rest untouched. Then its actually doing nothing else then executing your script and you should be fine.
