1E 23.7 (SaaS)

Introducing 1E Client Deployment Assistant

1E Client Deployment Assistant (CDA ) is a wizard that assists with deployment of 1E clients, guiding you through common settings for clients and deployments.

CDA is available as a zip file which you can download from .

You use the wizard to do the following:

  • Create a MST transform file for each MSI containing your chosen settings

  • Create a text file that contains the command-line for deploying each MSI

  • Optionally allow deployment of an MSP patch file for each MSI

  • Optionally connect to Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager to:

    • Create applications and packages

    • Create deployments and collections for the applications

    • Distribute source files to Distribution Points.

The wizard creates an answer file which records the chosen settings (the wizard uses a template answer file which controls the default settings seen in the wizard).

You can download the latest Accumulated Hotfix MSP for each client, from the 1E Support Portal. The zip that you download may already contain an MSP file for each client. You should remove this if you have alternate methods of deploying patches.

If you are using Configuration Manager, you must run the wizard on a computer that has the Configuration Manager console installed. Windows ADK (with WinPE add-on) is also required locally if CDA is used to configure a deployment of PXE Everywhere .

To start the wizard, run 1EClientDeploymentAssistant.exe (using Run as Administrator) which prompts for the following:

  • Connection to a local or remote Configuration Manager site server

  • The URLs of Configuration Manager application and package content shares where source files must be copied to.

1E Client Deployment Assistant 23.7 contains the following product versions:

  • 1E Client (includes modules for Content Distribution , PXE Everywhere , Shopping/WSA , WakeUp )
