Check this out. It is a bit old but the process hasn't changed much. There are other videos out there as well on the Support site and the KKE videos.

Can I recommend the Best Practice process for configuring Managed Installations as taught by KACE Jumpstart Trainers.

Step 1 : Install Adobe Reader on a PC with a KACE agent on

Step 2: Get the PC to check in and look in the Software Inventory to find the new Adobe Reader item

Step 3: Click on the Software item and upload the installation msi by clicking the Choose file button in the upload and Associate area.

you now know that you have the installation files attached to the correct software inventory item, the software inventory item should now show a page icon when on the main kbox listing screen, this means that the software will be available to create a managed installation for.

Step 4: Go to Distribution>Managed Installations and create a new managed installation the Software will now be in the Software: dropdown and you will not need to associate or upload the file from within the Managed Installation.
