Software deploy with integrated uninstall of old Software

Hello LD-Professionalls,

 

I had to Install a new Version of our Anti Virus Software, however the software does not support upgrade to newer Versions, so I had to uninstall the Old Version and Install the new one.

 

How I do this:

- First I run the Executable file named delnvc5.exe

- After running this exe (Need to run with Admin-rights not System-rights) I have to restart the PC

- When PC is restarted virus software is uninstall an I´m able to install the new version (MSI Packet)

 

Now my Question is:

- This would be a great chance to do this with Landesk, isn´t it?

- How can ich deploy software pakets with other user rights like the admin user

- Is it possible to cascade software pakets? Example: Deploy one Paket wait for Reboot Deploy the other?

 

I use Landesk 9.0 Managment Suite with SP3 and need to install the Paket on a Windows XP SP3 Computer.

 

with best regards

PJM

    The best way to handle reboots are by using a Provisioning Template for your distribution or a Custom Script. In the Provisioning Template you can use the reboot option and in a Custom script you can control this by doing a reboot and than a SLEEP followed by a REMPING to see when the system is on again.
