Is it possible to use snapin packs to install multiple applications. For example, I create a script that installs chrome, firefox, 7zip, etc. In the zip file that is uploaded to FOG contains the script and the application that i want to install.
Reason i want to do this is because i can create monthly batches and deploy them once a month (updated version of apps) I’ve tried but have been unsuccessful.
yes. zip up all the installers you wish to package together into a single zip file with a single batch install script (let’s call it install.cmd) that runs each executable with its relevant silent install options (these can typically be found at their websites).
zip file contents:
install.cmd 7z-x64.exe firefox.exe firefox.ini ChromeStandaloneSetup64.exe vlc3.exe
7z-x64.exe /S /D="C:\Program Files\7-Zip" firefox.exe /INI=[FOG_SNAPIN_PATH]\firefox.ini ChromeStandaloneSetup64.exe /silent /install vlc3.exe /S /L=1033
note: you would need to create & include firefox.ini in the zip file along with the relevant firefox installer, as seen above
when you create the snapin pack use:
template: batch file
snapin pack file: cmd.exe
snapin pack arguments: /c “[FOG_SNAPIN_PATH]\install.cmd”
