Deploy Software from different folders
what is the best way to install a programm that needs the whole upper directory for installation?
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.
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.
