Where are the guides to office deployments via Shavlik?
You can see the instructions for deploying office patches in help > index > office deployment.
My question was where the guides were for installing software and software suites such as Microsoft Office. Your answer was how to install Office patches, which is not the same thing.
In the previous forum, there were guides that were pinned to the top of certain of the sections detailing how to go about extending the functions of Shavlik to include deploying large software packages, not just patches and standard apps.
Are these guides still available?
We have multiple mechanisms for distributing software: Software Distribution, Custom Actions, and Custom Patches. Information regarding these mechanisms can currently be located within the Administration Guide, which can be accessed through the 'Help' menu, by depressing the 'F1' key, or downloaded from the following page:
I'd go look in the old forum for them.
