Scripting Question

Is there a way to insert admin credentials into a software package?

06/28/2017 580 views
My company has a software catalog that will install packages from Landesk without the end user needing local admin rights. My problem is that we have many remote users and in order for them to use the software catalog, they must be connected to the VPN. I have been tasked with repackaging our VPN software so that an end user who is having issues with the VPN client already installed, or if they got a new computer and VPN was not set up on the computer before it went out, they can download it from our VPN website, and install it. I thought maybe a script packaged with the MSI that would insert admin credentials would be the way to go, but so far I have not been successful. I did manage to write a script that will call the MSI and use the correct local admin account, but it still prompts for the password. Is what I have been tasked to do even possible? I use Adminstudio to package.

  • Which VPN software? Have you tried it with Managed Install and/or Scripting?
