How do I deploy the DeploymentPro for UserActivation Agent from a File Share?

Answer: 

  • Launch UserActivation from your MSPComplete portal.
  • Proceed through the steps, until you reach the DeploymentPro steps.
  • Select File Share as the deployment method. Now follow these steps to download and extract the neccessary files onto a file server:
    • Download bootstrap.exe to a File Share. See KB004764 to obtain a link to download this software.  Note: When downloading the software, make a note of the download directory.
  • From Windows File Explorer, switch to the directory where bootstrap.exe was downloaded.
    • Double-click on the downloaded bootstrap.exe file.

    • From the resulting pop-up window, click on Extract All.

    • Set the Destination directory, under the Files will be extracted to this folder field.

    • Click on the Extract button.

  • Now return to the DeploymentPro project, and locate the DeploymentPro project Activation Code. This can be found from the DeploymentPro status tab, as in the screen shot below:

  • The users can now download the bootstrap.exe from the File Share to their local drive.
  • Once downloaded, open up a command console window, change to the directory where the bootstrap.exe file was downloaded, and run the following command: Bootstrap.exe xxxxxxxxxxxx ?

    • Notes:

      • Replace xxxxxxxxxxxx with the Activation code from your DeploymentPro status tab.

      • The "?" is required at the end of this command.

  • Follow the prompts to complete the installation.
