To create a new custom client installation configuration

  2. On the Admin Tab, under Tasks, click Install Packages.
    The current default client installation packages appear on the right.
  3. Under View Install Packages, click Client Install Settings.
  4. Under Tasks, click Add Client Install Settings.
  5. Specify the name you would like the custom Client Install Settings to have.
  6. Give the custom Client Install Settings a description.
  7. Select an installation type from the following:
    • Unattended (Displays notification, but requires no user input)
    • Interactive (User input required)
    • Silent (No user input or display)
  8. Select either Restart the computer after installation or Do not restart the computer after installation.
  9. Select the installation location (default or custom folder).
  10. Enable or disable installation logging.
  11. Select whether or not to add the program to the Start Menu.
