Software Deployment Question

Deploying exe with xml

08/24/2020 269 views


We are trying to deploy sysmon. It requires an config.xml

I found this post that talks about deployment but to no avail.

As in the post, I've zipped both sysmon.exe and config.xml, associated the zip file, selected to override the default installation with "SysmonDeploy.zip" && Sysmon64.exe -accepteula -i config.xml

I see the zip file land on a target system in C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\109\. The folder is also exists in an unzipped form (SysmonDeploy) with both, Sysmon64.exe and the config.xml. However, the package does not get installed.

If I select to alert a user with a completion message, the pop up shows up in a few seconds. The managed installation job however shows that the software still needs to be deployed.

Not sure how else to proceed. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

remove "SysmonDeploy.zip" && from the command line.

It tries to run the Command "SysmonDeploy.zip" and since it does not know how to handle it it ends the deployment here. 
Zipfiles are automaticly unzipped, so the simple command is sufficient.
