    Actually I'd beg to differ somewhat, especially for primary school software (welcome to our world/hell/etc..). For all that we've a good wiki and oft quoted resources like appdeploy to help though..

    If nought else the command line functionality is a {deity} send


    As for the bulk registry updates not yet, but you could push out a .reg file and run regedit /s RegEntries.reg to acomplish that task.
    [whine] but that's too much like hard work surely.. [/whine]

    Re: Third Party Software Deployment

    I stand corrected.

    Is there a particular operating system that purgos is not able to connect to? What errors show up in the history?

    The only difference between the computers that do successfully get the client and those that don't, are that those that don't are located in a different room. All the switches and routers are the same - none of which are firewalled.

    I have had this problem in the past with another program, and found the only solution was to install the client manually on the machine. Is that an option with Purgos?

    Sorry for the delayed response, I didn't see the email notification for the reply.

    Manually installing the agent should be as simple as copying the sftzExxCmd.exe file to the agent in the C:\Purgos directory and running sftzExxCmd.exe -install

    Resurecting an old thread here - very silly question but I have my neurotic head on today!
    If I use purgos to install software on the teacher's laptops (used it in suite and it's brill!) does it leave any sort of software running that would make their laptops vunerable whilst on their home broadband? They have windows firewalls turned on but I'd thought I'd err on the side of caution before I use it on the laptops.

    Purgos Agent Security

    The agent uses 2 forms of communication.

    1) DCOM for Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI)
    2) RPC for agent server communication

    The first is configurable by the user but default requires that the connect be made using Administrator credentials.

    The second is specific to purgos and uses NTLM authentication and requires the that server connecting to the agent be an local administrator on the computer that is running the agent software.

    So in short only adminisrators may connect to the purgos agent.

    At our office we're using uDeployer. It's a very simple application that does its job. It especially works great for 3rd party software deployment to many computers - we have about 150 computers and it works great.
