5.5.2.2 - Updating the Client Workstation

When updating, it is very important to redeploy the MSI file so that the client workstations do not become unsynchronized.

Once the administrative installation is updated, the GPO must be used to redeploy (synchronize) the client workstations’ MSI files using the server’s MSI files. Do so as follows:

msiexec /i "\\path\to\Antidote10.msi" REINSTALL=all REINSTALLMODE=vomus TRANSFORMS="\\path\to\ReseauAntidote.mst"  
msiexec /i "\\path\to\Antidote10-Modulefrancais.msi" REINSTALL=all REINSTALLMODE=vomus  
msiexec /i "\\path\to\Antidote10-Englishmodule.msi" REINSTALL=all REINSTALLMODE=vomus
msiexec /i "\\path\to\Antidote-Connectix10.msi" REINSTALL=all REINSTALLMODE=vomus TRANSFORMS="\\path\to\ReseauConnectix.mst"  
  • The TRANSFORMS does not need to be indicated for the modules.
  • Integration with newly supported software will be completed the next time Antidote 10 is launched (from the Start menu) or the next time each user of the workstation logs in.

For example, here is the content of a script that allows silent updates to a client workstation. Note that there are cookie files, which are necessary to prevent unnecessary reinstallations each time the script is run.

@echo OFF

rem Warning, do not use this script for an initial deployment.
