Deploying Access Agent version 8.1 with Fixpacks and iFixes

Question & Answer


Question

How do I install the Access Agent with Fixpacks and iFixes without manually installing each item

Answer

The following steps will install the iFix onto the clients with the base code and Fixpacks.

Assume that the Access Agent install package is copied to c:\temp\install\AccessAgent.
Assume that the Access Agent fixpack is copied to c:\temp\fixpacks

1. Copy the install package to the local machine c:\temp\install
2. Copy the Fixpack to the local machine c:\temp\fixpacks
3. Copy the iFix code into the install package Config directory c:\temp\install\AccessAgent\Config
4. Review the iFix README and update the DeploymentOptions.reg file with any registry variables that
need to be added or modified c:\temp\install\AccessAgent\Reg\DeploymentOptions.reg
5. execute the msiexec command

msiexec /i "c:\temp\install\AccessAgent\TAM E-SSO AccessAgent.msi" PATCH="c:\temp\fixpacks\8.1.0-TIV-TAMESSO-AA-FP00??.msp"

When executing the msiexec command the following will be done

1. msiexec installs the base package
2. msiexec installs the fixpack
3. the base install will execute the post install action which will copy all files in the install package config folder to the installation path (c:\Program Files\Encentuate).

If you have DLL's you need to have copied to C:\Program Files\Encentuate you can put them in the install package config folder and they will be copied also.

To add/modify Registry entries you need to edit the install dir\Reg\DeploymentOptions.reg file.

To have the install/uninstall run in silent mode add the following flags to the msiexec command line
/qn

To have the msiexec not reboot the computer add the following flags to the msiexec command line
REBOOT="ReallySuppress"

For more information on the msiexec PATCH flag see the following
