Starry Night 7 | MSI Network Installation via GPO

    Follow


    Here's what you need to do to deploy Starry Night (or any msi installer) to client computers via GPO.

    1. Get the MSI package

    •  Extract starrynightcollege7.exe using 7z or WinRAR


    2. Create a distribution point

    • Log on to the server as an Administrator user
    • Create a shared network folder (this folder will contain the MSI package)
    • Set permissions on this folder in order to allow access to the distribution package
    • Copy everything that was extracted in Step 1 to the shared folder


    3. Create a Group Policy Object

    • Click on the Start button, go to Programs, select Administrative Tools and then select Active Directory Users and Computers
    • Right-click your domain name in the console tree and select the Properties context menu
    • Select the Group Policy tab and click New
    • Set the name of the policy (for example StarryNightCollege)
    • Click Properties and select the Security tab
    • Check the Apply Group Policy checkbox only for the groups to which the policy will be applied
    • Click on the OK button


    4. Assign an MSI package

    • Click on the Start button, go to Programs, select Administrative Tools and then select Active Directory Users and Computers
    • Right-click your domain name in the console tree and select the Properties context menu
    • Go to the Group Policy tab, select the object you want and click Edit
    • Expand Software Settings under Computer Configuration
    • Right-click Software Installation, select the New context menu and then click on Package
    • In the Open dialog type the full UNC path of the shared package you want to assign
    • Click on the Open button
    • Click on Assigned and then click OK (the package will be added to the right pane of the "Group Policy" window)
    • Close the Group Policy snap-in, click OK and exit the Active Directory Users and Computers snap-in
    • When the client computers start, the assigned package will be installed automatically
