POWERSHELL, INSTALL AND CONFIG SOFTPAQ DOWNLOAD MANAGER

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, 

 

I would like to create a powershell script to install Softpaq Download Manager, identify the workstation catalog and go directly to the "Search for updates" tab in silent mode to save time when deploying a workstation.

I've tested several things and I'm out of ideas.

 

Thank you in advance for your answer.

SoftPaq Download Manager has been retired (EOL July 2019).  Current and future development is now focused on HP Image Assistant.

If you have an interest in PowerShell I suggest you check our the HP Client Management Script Library.  This is a collection of PowerShell scripts that can assist you.

The following blog site has several docs that are also very helpful.

Hi Joel,

 

Thank you for your answer. 

I need powershells to deploy posts every day and save time..

I have already tried to use the Management Script Library client. I tried to use the SoftPaq Management section to make a script but I couldn't find how to select the drivers to install (for example if I want to install one software but not another). Moreover, I didn't find how to install automatically in silent mode the drivers.

 

I also tried to make a ".bat" script to automate scanning, downloading and installation from HP Image Assistant but it doesn't work. The analysis is not done.

 

script : 

HPImageAssistant.exe /Operation:Analyze /Category:All /selection:All /action:install

See if you can execute HPIA to run a report to make sure it is executing.

 

Here is an example where the report will be placed into the root of C:\

 

HPImageAssistant.exe /Debug /Operation:Analyze /Action:List /Silent /Category:All /ReportFolder:C:\

 

The report should show all drivers that should be installed.  This command also includes a /Debug switch that will generate an HPIA log file.  This is a great file to see what is going on with HPIA.  It is placed into the users TEMP folder.

 

Have you been looking at the HPIA User Guide for examples?

HPIA doesn't process command line without /silent today. The next release will have the option to display a progress bar instead of being completely silent. This version is in final test and should be available soon.
