How do you configure a Silent install via Desktop Authority of Citrix Password Manager Plug-in 4.8. I'm looking to push this application to all the users computers, so that the next time they log-in it will install the program and then will have to register there questions to be able to Unlock or Reset there account.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I don't know how this is made in desktop authority; here are the ways using group policy:

1. if this setup comes as MSI, assign it in the group policy, and specify silent install there.

2. if it comes not as MSI but setup.exe, figure out the switches for the setup.exe that make it silent (this depends on the maker of the setup.exe - Installshield has their set of switches, Innosetup theirs, and so on; sometimes you can run setup.exe /? and it will show them), and specify that command line in the logon script (so it gets installed per-user) or machine startup script (per-machine) of the group policy.

It is a .msi file. You can create the Single-Sign on image via the Citrix Xenapp 6 CD. But it also creates two folders. So how is it I add those two folders to each users computer as well.

What you see on the picture 11 is so called administrative installation. The MSI can have all the files packed in a cab file contained inside the msi; or it can have them external, like in this case. The latter msi with external files is small compared to the one with the files inside. With this type, you run the msi in same way as usual, and it picks up the files from this same directory, and installs them on the local computer. You don't need to do anything.

Let's find out if the problem is with the installation itself, or with the way it's configured in desktop authority. Run this msi manually. If you get an error, then the problem is with the installation, and the best is to recreate the installation by running the original "big" msi with parameter /a . If there's no error, then the problem is with the way you have configured this deployment in the desktop authority, and I would start with recreating it.

Or you can forget desktop authority and deploy as I said in http:#34872922 , option #1.
