I am testing PDQ because we are thinking about replacing Secunia. I setup PDQ Deploy and PDQ Inventory on a server (Win Server 2003). I added two computers to test. I am using the Free version. I checked in PDQ Inventory and saw that one of the machines had an old version of Adobe Reader so I decided to test that using the steps below:
- Downloaded Adobe Reader .exe > Put it in repository \\canon\C$\Documents and Settings\All Users\Documents\Admin Arsenal\PDQ Deploy\Repository\Adobe\Reader
- In PDQ Deploy > New Package > Created name > Browsed to the .exe file > Left remaining fields set to default > Deployed it
- It showed the status was successful but when I view the machines in PDQ Inventory, the version is not updated
- I checked on the computers and nothing was prompting to update or reboot
What needs to happen after you deploy a package? Will the update occur only after a reboot? Will the update occur after the user logs on next time?
Thanks for your consideration.
