Hi All,

I just wanted to share an idea I had to allow Users to install approved software via Lansweeper.

These are the basic steps :

I have created a simple application EXE written in Visual Studio, this just reads a CSV of software from a server and presents a list of software to the user in a small window. (image attached), the application will check to see if the software is installed and the version , if the version in Lansweeper is newer it will display update available, already installed, or install.

When the User clicks "Install" of say Google Chrome a "TAG" file is created on the C: drive of the machine "C:\TEMP\CHROME-IN.INS"

In lansweeper I have setup a File scan for each of the TAG files and along with this a report for each with 2 criteria

1. Does TAG file exist
2. Is the software installed

I have then setup a scheduled install for every hour, this runs against each of the reports and so deploys the software as the machines are scanned and Tag file is found.

I have also added an additional part to the exe to delete the "LastScan" from the LSAgent.ini and restart the service to force a quicker scan , but this may not be needed ?

If anyone needs any additional information please let me know ?

Cheers

Andy
