Deployment Solution

Issue/Introduction

User has unzipped a CAB file containing necessary drivers and is attempting to add said drivers to DeployAnywhere, but some of them throw an error and cannot be added. 

 

Failed to Add Drivers

Environment

Windows Server OS

Cause

DeployAnywhere is unable to add drivers requiring executable files to install, specifically some audio and video drivers. 

 

Resolution

Workaround:

  1. Unzip the CAB file 
  2. Find and recompress the necessary drivers 
  3. Add the drivers that do not require an executable to install to DeployAnywhere 
  4. Create an OS deployment job that uses DeployAnywhere 
  5. Add to the job a Software Deployment task that will deploy the drivers that require an executable to install to the target machine after it boots to Production
