I am trying to deploy TeamViewer Host with a custom script to add the computer to a group,
now I'm a n00b when it comes to PDQ (today is the first real go at it)
I have put the msi file in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Deploy\Repository\PDQTemplates\TeamViewer
I have created Step1 to quit teamviewer (this works)
Step2 is to install TeamViewer_Host.msi, and it was working at this step but would get stuck, now it's saying "MSI Error 1619: Install file could not be found"
on Step 2 under details and command line I have put
msiexec.exe /i "C:\Apps\TeamViewer_Host.msi" /qn APITOKEN=xxxxxx CUSTOMCONFIGID=xxxxxx ASSIGNMENTOPTIONS="--alias %ComputerName% --grant-easy-access --group-id gxxxxxx"
for "C:\Apps\TeamViewer_Host.msi" do I put the install folder that PDQ copies the file to or something else?
As I said above I am a N00B when it comes to PDQ, so I would be grateful for any help.
I recommend using an install step instead of a command step to install the .msi file. This will allow you to provide the .msi file, and PDQ Deploy will take care of running the .msi and your custom parameters on your targets. It's also a bit simpler and easier.
Here are the docs from TeamViewer on installing the TeamViewer Host:
TeamViewer Host documentation
TeamViewer Host - Mass deployment on Windows
You should be able to use PDQ Deploy to Create a Basic MSI Package to push out the host client.
Read more about the install step in our docs here: https://link.pdq.com/docs-PDQDeploy?index.html?install-step.htm
Hope that helps!
