How do I deploy the Calendar Browser Client installation in an automated fashion?

With the file CBClientSetup.msi, the administrator can avoid trusting each user with installations and upgrades, or from going from machine to machine to install or upgrade. Instead you can use the tools within your existing Windows server to deploy these MSI setups throughout your organization.

You can also use the scrip file RegistryScript.vbs in the Calendar Browser server folder to add Calendar Browser group(s) to the client installations. This file can be used individually (see below) or with Active Directory.

Installation via Active Directory

A detailed elaborate tutorial on this aspect is out of context in this FAQ, but there are informative resources and knowledge base articles available on the internet.

Here are some links which should give you a fair idea on how to implement such a deployment technique in your organization.

Additionally, the User MSI setup can be installed silently, by running the CBClientSetup.msi with the /qn commandline parameter

Eg. CBClientSetup.msi/qn

Installation without Active Directory

In the Calendar Browser server folder you can find the script RegistryScript.vbs. When you run this script, it adds Calendar Browser group(s) to the client installations.

On request we give a modified RegistryScript.vbs that takes care of both the client installation and the addition of calendar group. Please contact the kalmstrom.com Support if you need such a script.
