Deployment Questions

Configuration Manager 2010
Folio Views 4.7.0.8

I am developing a deployment for Folio Views. The installation is from an Install Shield setup.exe file. I created a response file for the install/uninstall, and so far it is all working great. I would like to put some finishing touches on the deployment, and that's where I have run into some problems. I would like the deployment to:

  1. Install automatically without the user needing to initiate the install from the Software Center.

  2. Install fully hidden (I am using the /s switch, but nonetheless a couple of C++ components flash on the screen when they install).

  3. Check the CM client cache size and maybe fail the installation with a specific error code or message if the available cache size is too small.

Any help that you can offer on any of these 3 goals will be greatly appreciated!

Regarding the first item, I came across the following article which confirmed what I thought, but I have been unable to find the Required option.

  https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/apps/deploy-use/deploy-applications

Regarding the second item, on the User Experience tab I changed the Program Visibility to hidden (It was set to normal), but the C++ windows still flash up on the screen, so either that option does not do what I think it does, or it is not able to suppress the C++windows.

Here is an answer to your question that hopefully you find helpful!

but I have been unable to find the Required option.

In my lab, I tested the deployment of an application. When we deploy the application, On the Deployment Settings page, we could choose from the drop-down list whether the deployment is Available or Required. Like below screenshot:

on the User Experience tab I changed the Program Visibility to hidden (It was set to normal).

This setting is only used to control not to display notifications in Software Center and not notify users on client computers.

Microsoft Visual C++ is an external dependency of deploying the client to a Windows computer in Configuration Manager, and it will be automatically downloaded during the client installation process. The settings in the User Experience tab will not affect C++.
