Deploying clients by using Custom Installation
Custom Installation creates the custom packages that can be installed using third-party deployment software or a login script.
Custom Installation performs the following actions:
Create 32-bit or 64-bit executable installation package.
The installation package can comprise one setup.exe file or a collection of files that include a setup.exe file. Computer users often find one setup.exe file easier to use.
Save the installation package in the default directory or a directory of your choice.
The default directory is as follows:
You must provide the installation package to the computer users. The users run the setup.exe file to install the client software. You or the computer users must restart the computers after installation.
