EMCO Remote Installer:
This remote deployment solution allows you to perform unattended software installation and uninstallation on remote Windows PCs quickly and easily. You can use it to install and uninstall EXE setups and MSI/MSP packages remotely on selected Windows PCs connected to a local network. Also, you can retrieve data on installed software from remote PCs, get aggregated software inventory reports and keep track of software changes.
Remote Software Installation/Uninstallation Tool
EMCO Remote Installer is an easy-to-use network application designed for centralized software management and audit across a LAN. It offers a simple and effective approach to remote software distribution and can be used instead of SCCM and other complicated deployment tools.
Professional Edition is a commercial tool that provides you with advanced deployment and software audit features. It allows you to install and uninstall software on an unlimited number of remote PCs within the scope of a single operation. Deployment targets can be selected statically or dynamically by conditions. Also, you can create remote deployment and software audit tasks that can be executed manually or automatically on schedule.
EMCO Remote Installer: All-in-One Software Deployment Solution
EMCO Remote Installer is an integrated solution that covers different aspects of Windows software management. The application is capable of operating in enterprise environments and managing software across multiple domains and workgroups. You can use it for unattended remote installation/uninstallation of EXE setups and MSI/MSP packages and for audit of installed applications across a network - all these features are available from the application's centralized administrative console.
Remote Software Deployment
Install, uninstall and repair EXE installations, MSI and MSP packages on one or multiple selected remote PCs over a LAN. You don't need to pre-install any client software on remote PCs. Software deployments work silently for end-users and are executed in parallel on multiple remote PCs to guarantee high performance deployment. Learn how it works
Multi-Step and Customized Deployments
Use multi-step deployment if you need, for example, to uninstall an old version of software and install a new one during one operation. Also, you can configure the application to execute custom actions before/after deployment. If deployment targets include different platforms, you can deploy different installations on x86 and x64 PCs. Learn how it works
Reusable Deployment Configurations
Save software deployment configurations as software bundles and use them in deployment operations. Each bundle represents the steps required to install, uninstall and repair particular software. Multiple bundles can be grouped in bundle groups. Export and import bundles to exchange deployment configurations with colleagues. Learn how it works
Condition-Based Deployment Targets
Configure target PCs for deployment operations using flexible options. Specify a set of static PCs and conditions to define dynamic groups based on domains/workgroups, PC names and OUs. Target PCs can be filtered by conditions based on the installed OS and software. You can save target configurations as collections to use in deployments. Learn how it works
Audit software installed on the network PCs. The application extracts OS information and Windows Programs and Features data from remote PCs and stores it in a centralized database. You can track software changes and use the software audit data in deployment operations to select target PCs satisfying the software audit conditions. Learn how it works
Deployment Tasks and Schedule
Create preconfigured tasks if you need to execute the same deployment or software audit operations multiple times. A task includes a configuration of deployed software and target PCs. You can execute tasks manually or schedule them for automatic execution. Schedule a task for one-time or recurring execution on a defined date/time. Learn how it worksks
