If you selected From a Shared Folder at the How do you want to deploy...? dialog, the Configure Folder Share dialog is displayed:


Read access on the shared folder is required for users to be able to install and upgrade the deployed application. Shared folder permissions must be set outside of this installation for deployments installed to a UNC location.

  1. Enter a Share Name in the field provided. This is the name that the Deployment Folder will be shared as to users.

    The Share Name must be unique. You cannot enter the name of an existing share.

  2. Enter the External Name of the server hosting the Deployment Folder configured, or accept the default value presented. This is the name users will use to access the server. The default value is the machine name of the machine containing the shared folder.

    The External Name field is only available if Advanced Mode is selected on the Welcome to the Deployment Creation Wizard dialog.

  3. Click Next. The Folder Share Permissions dialog is displayed if you are installing the deployment to a local drive (e.g., C:):

    This dialog allows you to add or remove the users and groups that have read access to the Deployment Folder. By default, the local Everyone group is given read access.


    Read access is required for users to be able to install and upgrade the deployed application.

  4. Click Add to add additional users or groups, or select a user or group to remove and click Remove to remove it. If the users and groups presented are acceptable, proceed to the next step.

    If you click Add, the Select Users and Groups dialog is displayed:

    Select the Domain or Workspace to find users and groups under from the drop-down list, then enter a User Group or Name to search for in the field provided, and click Search. Leave the User or Group Name field empty to locate all available accounts.

    Select the user or group to add from the Search Results, then click OK. Repeat as necessary to configure your Folder Share Permissions.

  5. Click Next. The Package Extraction dialog is displayed, which displays the progress of the installation.
  6. Click Next when the extraction has completed. The General Settings dialog is displayed.

    The General Settings dialog is not displayed for all modules, depending on the type of application being deployed. For example, desktop shortcuts cannot be created for the Microsoft Office add-ins so the General Settings dialog is not displayed.

    Select Create Desktop Shortcuts to create a shortcut to the deployed application on the client machine when the application is first installed on the client machine.


    This option is only available for new deployments.

  7. Click Next.

    You do not need to complete the steps under Manually Created Share Steps. Proceed to the section after the Manually Created Share Steps section.
