How can I automate software installs and new pc rollouts? RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is the best way to automate software installs for new pc rollouts?

    I am looking to automate the repetitive install tasks by "daisy-chaining" the installs of common software products (Office, Adobe Reader, Window updates and service packs, etc...). 

    What is the best way to do that?  ... using scripting, Microsoft products or third party products?

    Thanks for you input!

  • Hi Bro,

    You can try using autoit

    http://www.autoitscript.com/site/autoit/

     

    This above helps to capture your movement of mouse and keyboard. after you are done recording. Kindly save the recording which will be xxxx.exe, then install the autoit installer file on the client machine and execute the xxxx.exe which was created by you. and make sure you place the application installation files on the client machine and.. simply just execute the script. it will do the rest including inserting of licenses keys
