Snapin Packs



  • 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
    

    install.cmd:

    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”
