The SCCM wizard is shown by our sccm.exe tool, available in the Architect edition. You can launch it from our SCCM page in Advanced Installer, from your start menu shortcuts for Advanced Installer or by simply executing the named file from our installation folder.
The SCCM tool allows you to choose between two deployment modes: package or application. You can perform deployments for both SCCM 2007 and SCCM 2012.
Creating an SCCM application requires System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Admin Console to be installed.
Supported Setup Types
You can use the Advanced Installer SCCM tool to create deployments for the following setup types:
- SCCM package: all setup type that can be deployed using a "Package Definition File". Additionally you can deploy virtual packages (AppV 4.x) for SCCM 2007.
- SCCM application: MSI, AppV 4.x, AppV 5.x
Script your deployment
The SCCM deployment tool also comes with a command line interface, so you can create scripts that call our tool silently (with no UI) and handle the deployment of one or more packages.
To see all the commands available browse to our bin\x86 folder, open a CMD window in this folder and execute this command:
To execute sccm.exe silently you need to first pass the parameter /NoUI, then continue with the rest of parameters. The entire list of parameters is detailed on the help page of the equivalent GUI option, all pages are linked below.
The following pages describe in detail the options available to deploy your packages. When you launch the wizard from SCCM page Advanced Installer will automatically perform a build operation and after that completes the current build output as the package to be deployed by the wizard.
