Displaylink

A widely used reference driver / software for docking stations and port replicators.

There is a special corporate deployment MSI file, one for Win 7 to Win10 build 10586 and one for Win 10 > build 10586

http://www.displaylink.com/downloads/corporate/logged-in

msiexec.exe /i "DisplayLink_Win7-10TH2.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log /norestart /passive /quiet

I deploy them with the following conditions:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\

Value; CurrentBuildNumber
Number < 14393

And the RS1 version:

msiexec.exe /i "DisplayLink_Win10RS1.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log /norestart /passive /quiet

With condition:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\

Value; CurrentBuildNumber
Number > 14393

    @Rudy,

    Sorry for the delay. We had to make some small changes to the agreement and getting everything signed on our end. Not too much longer.

  • I'm waiting to hear back from their legal team to make sure we can use the MSI.

     

    UPDATE 12/1

    I was finally contacted by Displaylink. They want to write up an agreement so we can distribute their software.

  • DisplayLink requires that you are a system admin of your organization in order to acquire a login for the MSI. 

    I need to contact them and make sure since i will not be using this internally, but externally that we are still not breaking any licensing rules. I'll let you know when i hear back.

  • You can create a login on their site to gain access to the msi file. They also provide documentation on  the exact switches/parameters you can use to deploy it. Once you fill out the form for the request you'll get an email instantly with your login details.
