Run Managed Install at Boot for Offline Users


I'd like to deploy a piece of software using a managed install with the "at boot" or "after login" option, as this is software they use throughout the day, so I don't want to try and install while they're working in it. Problem is, not all of my users have access to the SMA when logging in (they login, then connect to the VPN later). Is it possible to have KACE download the install, when they ARE connected, then deploy it at the next login?

I imagine this can be done with a script. Has anyone taken that approach? Any other ideas?

This has been a feature I've wanted for a long time but has never gotten traction on uservoice (see this and this)

The way I do this is to have two scripts: one that loads the dependency silently and a separate script that checks for the dependency as the first task. To get fancy you could use a Custom Inventory Record to look for the the dependency files so that you can make smart labels based on the presence/absence of the dependencies.
