Hi I am trying to work on the application named Toad for Oracle 11.5.1.

The issue is that when run thru sccm, it needs input but we are unable to move forward because it doesn’t have admin rights.  Can it be repackaged?


so is there really needed to repackage the application.


I appreciate your help.

How are you installing it through SCCM? I hope you are trying to install it through System account... When you install it thorugh system account I don't think so users need admin rights to proceed with the installation..

  • what is system context and user context? and how i can install through them?

Rather than go down that road, I'd ask if there's a way to silently install it.  If the input is static, can you add it to the command line of the program?    If it's not, is it something that you can make static?

What input is it asking for?

I've packaged Toad before, and can't recall it asking for input or admin rights.

  • its asking admin rights when i am trying to install from sccm 2012. so previous packager i do not know how he has packaged but it has altimately come to me as previous packaging team does not exists now. so i am trying to solve the problem without repackaging it.

You can write a VBScript to take input from the user and pass it as a parameter while installation of MSI in commandline as a Public Property.

  • Does Toad require you to target Users? If not, then you should target machines, and the installation should be performed in System context.
