Push Install and Uninstall Method Using the Option Editor

The Administrative Image Option Editor provides a push method for deploying the SolidWorks software remotely on Windows Vista® and Windows 7 clients for users who do not have administrative privileges.

A new Deploy Automatically page allows administrators to select systems for installing, updating or uninstalling the SolidWorks software. Operations can be scheduled for a specific time. Custom uninstalls can also be performed. The status of each requested deployment is recorded and listed as Pending, Succeeded or Failed.

The installation tasks are pushed to the target machines and carried out by the Microsoft Task Scheduler on each system, without requiring any actions by users.

To use this method, the computer serving the administrative image and the target client machines must be members of the same Microsoft Active Directory domain.
