Deploy MSI packages with RemoteExec

With RemoteExec, you can deploy MSI packages on your whole Windows network, in a couple of clicks, and be instantaneously informed of the results.

RemoteExec is an agentless and scalable software solution that will allow Network Administrators to:

Deploy MSI packages to (tens of) thousands of Windows systems in a couple of clicks

RemoteExec MSI installation settings example

Just specify the path to the server share where the MSI file is located, select Install as Operation and click on the Launch button in the toolbar to start the installation on all selected Windows systems.

Software applications can also be Uninstalled, Repaired or Updated, and even be customized with a transform file.

Perform conditional remote installations

Example of MSI deployment filters

RemoteExec comes with a scanner allowing remote system configuration information to be collected and used for conditional deployment: OS version, OS level (server/workstation), Service Pack, Internet Explorer version, customizable registry key/value, OS language, architecture, etc.

This makes it possible to execute a deployment on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 workstations only, without having to select them manually.

In the same way, RemoteExec will not try to install an MSI package on computers with the package already installed.

Schedule MSI packages deployment outside of business hours

RemoteExec scheduler

RemoteExec’s integrated scheduler allows remote installations at a specific time and/or frequency.

You will be able to plan deployment to workstations (or servers) outside of working hours, or to rerun previously failed actions due to system unavailability (unconnected laptops, etc.).

Perform remote installation of several MSI packages in one pass

RemoteExec can execute complex and multiple step actions.

Example of several MSI deployment in one pass with RemoteExec

In order to illustrate this capability, you can very easily configure the following sequence:

  • 1. Selected Windows systems wake up

  • 2. Deployment of 3 different MSI packages

  • 3. File and folder replication

  • 4. Registry modification

  • 5. Systems power off

MSI deployment result

Once a deployment is finished, RemoteExec automatically generates a list of Windows systems on which the installation failed (if any). That list of computers can be directly reinserted to rerun the deployment and complete the task.

RemoteExec also collects and displays the return codes generated by the remote processes, allowing the administrator to check system status.

RemoteExec logs installation history and results into an Access or SQL Server database and generates graphical, printable reports.

Additional RemoteExec features

RemoteExec will also allow you to:

  • Perform remote execution of programs (.exe, .bat, .cmd), scripts (.vbs, .js) and files associated to executables (.txt, .doc, .wav, .reg, .inf, .msi)
  • Deploy Service Packs, patches, hotfixes and updates
  • Remotely modify registry on all Windows systems throughout the network
  • Copy, update or delete files and folders on Windows systems of your choice throughout the network
  • Remotely change the Local Administrator Password and disable all other local accounts
  • Remotely power off, reboot or shutdown systems, wake up computers
  • Remotely lock or close user sessions
  • Send instant alerts to users by displaying pop-ups and/or running sound files
