Can I make a deployment package?
« on: August 25, 2014, 02:55:43 PM »
I'm in the IT department in a school district, we have started using Avast this school year.

We have the Enterprise Console setup on a server and do regular deployments but, our devices are connected and disconnected throughout the district at abnormal times. I would like to put a deployment package (based on our installation package on the server) onto a flash drive so we can deploy Avast on computers individually.

Can this be done?

thanks in advance.

thanks, I appreciate it. I have several questions and really hope we can get them answered. The last two questions have gone unanswered and I was told I should post in the Business Protection the last time I posted...

You can create a new deployment task which creates an EXE installer based on the installation package that you have selected.

The deployment package located in the Avast Software folder deploys without the settings that have been established in the Console. It puts the full blown version of Avast with every component and every shield and we don't want that.

Hello,

Before you start the deployment task, you can change installation components in installation packages.
Then uncheck unused components.

I understand how to setup the deployment task, what I'm saying is, it doesn't apply the settings to the setup.exe file located in the Avast folder. It looks like the console applies the settings to the installation package. So, I can't make a deployment package outside of the console to use on individual computers.
