Automate Installation of RGS

HP Recommended

** Is it possible to automate  Installation of HP RGS (Remote Graphics Software)?

**           -If so, please outline the approach.

 

** In other words, can the installation be run from a single .MSI or .BAT file, with saved answers or command line parameters, to complete with a single run command or SCCM submission?

Hi mate if it's a MSI file this can be done from group policy or SCCM ConfigMgr 2007/2012/2012 R2 but make sure it's a shared file or folder with PRIVILGES needed to install the software. Please give me kudos point if this helped you out. 🙂

Hi,

 

Thanks for your response.  The install executable is a setup.exe file; but, there are tools to convert to .msi. 

** Is there a standard convention for displaying the command line arguments that may be used by a setup.exe file, for example, setup.exe /h   ? 

** When you say "make sure it's a shared file or folder with PRIVILGES needed to install the software", do you mean:

- that the .msi file needs to be assigned Security of Read, Write and Execute?

-that the folder that the .msi file is in, needs to be assigned Security of Read, Write and Execute?

-do they need a certain Ownership or other Properties?

( Note that I am working on a system running Windows 7 SP1 ).

hi mate there's no point of converting a EXE to MSI extension because with MSI files you don't need to provide parameter for the install but EXE you do UAC, what to install, Where to install if you do manage to convert it the file wouldn't do good as the EXE requires parameter

The HP RGS user guide has a section called "Performing a custom RGS Sender installation using the command line". I believe you should be able to leverage that to automate install. The user guide can be found at www.hp.com/go/rgs
