FAQ: Installing SiteKiosk with Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM)


You should use the MSI installer if you want to provide a SiteKiosk Classic Windows installation through Microsoft’s System Center Configuration Manager.
For SiteKiosk Online Client for Windows please see here:

- To get the MSI out of the SiteKiosk.exe you can proceed as follows:
The EXE file of the SiteKiosk installer (SiteKiosk.exe) already contains an msi file (SiteKiosk.msi).
You can access this MSI file when the installer of SiteKiosk (EXE) will be executed.
Under Windows 7 and later, you will find it at: “C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\Downloaded Installations\SiteKiosk\{INSTALL ID}”.

- Note that SiteKiosk requires Microsoft .NET and the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable to function properly. They are prerequisites and need to be installed before running the SiteKiosk MSI. The required versions depend on the version of SiteKiosk, either check by running the default SiteKiosk installer executable on a test system or contact the PROVISIO support.

- Using the MSI with silent options
You can use the MSI command line options.
Example for silent installation:

msiexec.exe /i SiteKiosk.msi /qn

Example for silent installation with setting another password for the SiteKiosk user account
(e.g. in case you have activated the secure password policy of Windows):

msiexec.exe /i SiteKiosk.msi /qn DEFAULTPASSWD=12MyPasswd

With logging

msiexec.exe /i SiteKiosk.msi /qn DEFAULTPASSWD=12MyPasswd /l*v c:\log.txt
