Creating a Stand Alone Application

  1. Open the Deployment Toolkit and go to the Application folder. The Application folder has three folders, one of which says “Stand Alone Applications.” This is where we will keep all of these installers, if only because that will keep them organizationally out of the way during the deployment. Generally speaking, all deployments should be relying on Application Bundles to have all of the applications that are needed for a client in them. 

  2. Right-click on the “Stand Alone Applications” folder and click “New Application.” 

  3. Leave the radio button on “Application with source files.” This will import the source files needed for installation into the deployment share, rather than rely on a network path for reference. 

  4. Name the Application. You can fill in the optional information, but I never do. 

  5. Browse to the source directory. This is the folder that should have all of the files that are needed for installation. 

  6. Type in the name of the application.

  7. This is the most important part of this whole thing. This is the command line command that you use to run the installer. The second line, in the “Working directory” field,” is the directory where the command will be run.

  8. Hit Next and it should be done.
