We are not using .MSI packages since the installation is normally just done when the computer is restarted (which is not always possible for servers).
We recommend using the Active Directory NETLOGON share because:
You can use also other public availabe network shares (Access Level: Everybody read/execute), please adopt the next steps to your domain configuration and selection of the distribution share.

Version 2 (more sophisticated, you can also do updates by creating an additional Batch File called serverversion.bat)
if exist "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\PatchAll\version.bat" call "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\PatchAll\version.bat" if exist "%ProgramFiles%\Patchall\version.bat" call "%ProgramFiles%\Patchall\version.bat" echo program verzeichnis %~dp0 call %~dp0serverversion.bat if "%localversion%"=="%serverversion%" goto nothing echo Install Patchall %~dp0PatchAllSetup-hs2n.exe /S /U echo echo Install Patchall if exist "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\PatchAll\" echo set localversion=%serverversion% >"%ProgramFiles(x86)%\PatchAll\version.bat" if exist "%ProgramFiles%\Patchall\" echo set localversion=%serverversion% >"%ProgramFiles%\Patchall\version.bat" rem echo Install Finished exit :nothing echo Patchall is already installed, doing nothing
Adopt the LINE
%~dp0PatchAllSetup-hs2n-1_2_0_8.exe /S with the .exe file you got in Step 1 (make sure that the
%~dp0 and the
/S is not touched)
the final folder structure should look like this (the .exe filename will be different)
