Importing and exporting deployment packages

Lansweeper includes a deployment module that allows you to remotely make changes to the Windows computers in your network. You can create your own deployment packages, but you can also import packages from and export them to .xml files. This allows you to use packages that others have created. It also allows you to share your creations with other Lansweeper users and with the Lansweeper support team, e.g. should you be having trouble running certain packages you've created.

A good place to find and share deployment packages is in our installer center.

 

To import or export a deployment package, do the following:

  1. Browse to the following section of the web console: Deployment\Installer Packages
    Installer Packages menu
  2. To export a package, select the package on the left and then hit the Export button on the right, right above the package name and description.

  3. To import a package, hit the Import button at the top of the page, hit the Browse... button in the resulting popup, select your .xml file and hit OK.

    Make sure you also download and place any files referenced by your deployment package in your package share folder. By default, this is the Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\PackageShare folder on your Lansweeper server, which is automatically shared as DefaultPackageShare$. If you configured a different package share, you can see its name listed in the Deployment\Security Options section of the console.
