Deploy those ZENworks App Bundles - MSI edition!
msiexec /i "c:\Temp\Bundles\Apps\ZoomInstallerFull.msi" /passive
- On the left navigation pane, click Bundles.
- Select New-->Bundle-->Windows Bundle-->MSI Application.
- Define Details: Name your application bundle, select the folder for it’s final resting spot and assign it an icon. Oh, be sure to add a description in the text box like version numbers or anything else pertinent. We are browsing to ZOOM exe “C:\Program Files (x86)\Zoom\bin\Zoom.exe” to grab the proper icon of this app rather than assigning something generic. Let’s face it, we’re going for a cool user experience so don’t overlook little things like this!
- Select Next. Here we will utilize the ZEN content repo where we’ll upload the MSI to the system and let it ingest all of that MSI app goodness! Alternatively, you have an option on this screen to point the bundle to an MSI out on a network share via UNC path.
Finish off by ensuring the bundle is in sandbox mode and “define additional properties” is ticked.
We’ve previously exported the registry edits to a reg file on our system then just simply created a new “Registry Edit” action set then imported the reg file – check it out below, easy as can be!
Below is a view of both the Install and Launch from our action sets respectively. The actions are named appropriately and the bundle is ready for sandbox testing. Go ahead and add your device or user assignment under Relationships and fire away!
