TimeCard Workgrop

Workgroup: How do I deploy the TimeCard User installation in an automated fashion?

With the file TimeCardUserSetup.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. 

On request we also give a script to Community Members who cannot use a Group Policy installation via Active Directory. This script installs TimeCard and sets the database and its values silently on the client machines.  We currently only give the script on request, as it has to be adapted to each organization. Please contact the bizsolutions365.com/staging Support if you need this script.

Installation with the User setup MSI file

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 TimeCardUserSetup.msi with the /qn commandline parameter 

Eg. TimeCardUserSetup.msi/qn
