Deploy Software from different folders

hi community

what is the best way to install a programm that needs the whole upper directory for installation?



for explanation:

i have an installfolder with subfolders, even the install.exe is in a subfolder



How to tell PDQ to copy the installfolder (i use "include entire directoy" for this) and all subfolders from the upper directory to the target computer before installation.

best regards

  • I had a similar issue when trying to deploy Matlab.

    I was able to accomplish it by replicating the "Command Line" field of the install step into a command step instead and replacing the installer file with a UNC path to the file on our PDQ Deploy repository. There are obviously issues with calling a large installer file over the network like that, so if you want to you could build in a copy step before to copy down the installer files and a command step after to clean them up.
