MyInstall: Application Wrapper for MDT


What is MyInstall.vbs?

MyInstall.vbs is an Application Wrapper for software Installation.  You can use it for most any file extension, although it manages MSI, MSP, MSU, and INF files directly.

What will I use it for?

Use it in MDT to configure your Application Installation using the MyInstall.config

Where do I get it?

From Here!

Where do I put this script?

Copy it to your Deployment Share under \Applications\Admin\MyInstall.  This way it makes it easy for you to copy it to Application Directories

How do I use it?

Simply place the VBS file in the root of an Application Install Directory.  The Install you want to run should be in a subdirectory (Source)
