Silent or Push Installs

Silent installs will benefit customers who have large deployments.  Currently, when we upgrade JobBoss we have to login as an admin and run the installer manually on 100+ computers.  This is unacceptable by todays standards and seems like it should be pretty easy to implement.

    Admin response

    With JobBOSS 2018 released today, we have made updates to the JobBOSS Client and the Workstation Driver Installers!!

     

    JobBOSS Client will have a Push or Auto installer function. Push will require some IT expertise (scripts) to deploy the updates from the server to the client. Auto will require the clients to have administrative access.

     

    Workstation Driver will have Push installing capability.

    This should have been done years ago.  I requested this multiple times from JobBoss since 2005.  I've had to implement and script the install for many years now, figuring out my own install flags to use as JobBoss would not provide any documentation.

    This should apply to BOTH, the client AND the Workstation driver.

    Also, you should have the ability to un-install.  Or at very minimum, have the install packages do an upgrade.  The last time we upgraded our client, the new version would not work properly unless I un-installed the previous version first.  A lot of extra work.
