The important thing is OMAHA=1, but this will force auto updates.
Setting your Snapin to MSI would be wrong because it’s not an msi.
Ok i am wrong here the binary contains an msi but i cannot find the temporary path where the installer extract it to.
Before trying to deploy that try this in a commandline on a local computer to see if it works.
EDIT: I tried it for you “googleearth-win-184.108.40.20636.exe OMAHA=1” installs earth silently on my system.
The Following should work, don’t forget to add the installer binary, i don’t do this for fun
The Snapin preview should look like “cmd.exe /c googleearth-win-220.127.116.1136.exe OMAHA=1”
If you finally want to extract the msi out of the exe installer read this: http://www.itninja.com/blog/view/deploying-google-earth-through-gpo
@msaglioc99 not that i’m aware of sorry.
Okay I will change the template to MSI and try to deploy it. Should any other settings be changed? That you see of?
@msaglioc99 it really depends on the file, but according to what i’m seeing, you can use MSI for the googleearthpro.exe file.
is setup as a pack? If you’re using the exe file itself? Packs are meant to be used as a “series” of data to be run/installed using a common executable to manage (maybe script is better?)
I did it as a pack because there was no template for an exe file as a regular snapin? What template should I select if I use snapin.
WHy is this setup as a pack? If you’re using the exe file itself? Packs are meant to be used as a “series” of data to be run/installed using a common executable to manage (maybe script is better?)
