Deployment Tips (2)

Most Common Setup Type
Windows Installer (Delivered as an EXE)
Average Package Difficulty Rating
Rated 4 / 5 (Somewhat Difficult) based on 1 ratings
Most Commonly Reported Deployment Method
Windows Installer Command Line (No MST)

Download the full LockDown Browser 2 Lab Edition installer from the Respondus Administrators Area (
https://www.respondus.com/campus-portal)  to the Downloads folder or other folder where the user has full read/write access.   (Not the root "C:\" folder.)

1.   Start the Windows Command Prompt (or run CMD.exe). (Do not use "Run as Administrator" or  "Command Prompt (Administrator)") 
2.  Change folders to where the installer was downloaded (i.e. the "Downloads" folder).
3.  From the command line run:

                LockDownBrowserLab-2-0-1-xx.exe /x "C:Temp"

4. Change folders to where the files were extracted in the "C:\Temp"
5. From the command line run:

                setup /r

This runs the regular installer but also creates a "c:\windows\setup.iss" file.

6.  Create a batch script (I called mine "Install.bat" with this command: 

            cd C:\Temp

            setup /s /f1"%CD%\setup.iss"

7. Copy the "setup.iss" file from "c:\windows\" into the folder containing the LockDown Browser Lab Edition installation files along with the Install.bat file.


            setup /s /f1"%CD%\unsetup.iss"

8.  Zip up the contents of the installation files along with the setup.iss and Install.bat files (I called mine "LockDownBrowser-2-0-6-01.zip")

9.  Upload the zipped folder as a dependency to this script.

10. Under "Verify," add:  Verify that the directory “C:\Program Files (x86)\Respondus” exists.

11. Under "On Success," add:  Launch “”C:\Program Files\InstallShield Installation Information\{EEDFE0FF-CB95-46D9-9050-F768B126ABDB}\Setup.exe“ with params ”-runfromtemp -l0x0409 -removeonly“

        This will uninstall version 2.00.0000 or you can create and then call a new script with this:  setup /s /f1"%CD%\unsetup.iss"

12. Under "Remediation," add: 

                Unzip “$(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\LockDownBrowser-2-0-6-01.zip” to “C:\Temp”

13.  Under "Remediation," add:  

                Launch “C:\Temp\Install.bat” with params “”  (No params)

14. Under "Remediation," add:  

                "Run a batch file" (I called mine Delete.bat) with this command:  RD /S /Q "C:\Temp"

            This will delete the Temp folder after installation.

Make sure to run this as a "OnLine K-Script" and as "Local System"

When you are finished you should have 2 dependencies:  delete.bat and the LockDownBrowser-x-x-x-xx.zip file.
