I am using Altiris Console -DS/NS and I would like to know if it's possible to install an application directly from a shared network drive without having to package it as MSI? like for example running the executable directly in Altiris console--do I need a script for that?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Sam,

We mostly use the "run script" function with Altiris DS 6.9. Here is an example:

"\\%DSSERVER%\PATHTOEXE\Firefox Setup 3.5.2.exe" /INI="\\%DSSERVER%\PATHTOEXE\Firefox_withprompt_nodesktop.INI" /norestart

This will install Firefox on the client machines using the exe from the Altiris Server. Of course you could change out %DSSERVER% with you file server path.

Hoping to help,
