Installing/Updating the Auto Packager on a Computer without Internet Access

05/02/2019 Cliff Hobbs

Background

There may be scenarios when the computer on which you wish to install the Cloudhouse Auto Packager does not have Internet access to download/update the Auto Packager. 

In such scenarios, the Auto Packager can be downloaded onto a computer that does have Internet access and then transferred to the computer on which you wish to install/update the Auto Packager.

Note

We do not recommend installing the Auto Packager on a computer without Internet access as it will be unable to complete the automatic check and installation of any updates each time the Auto Packager is run.

Step-by-step process

To install the Auto Packager on a computer without Internet access:

  1. Download and install the Auto Packager on a computer with Internet access.
  2. Navigate to the C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager folder and copy this and its contents to the Packaging Computer (if it is reachable on the network), or to a USB key. Either way, ensure the folder and its contents are created on the Packaging Computer in exactly the same location as the computer they were copied from.

To update the Auto Packager on a computer without Internet access:

  1. Download and install the latest version of the Auto Packager on a computer with Internet access.
  2. Navigate to the C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager folder and copy this and its contents to the Packaging Computer (if it is reachable on the network), or to a USB key, overwriting any existing files. Ensure the folder, its contents, and file sizes are the same and are created on the Packaging Computer in exactly the same location as the computer they were copied from.

Tip

If you want to create a desktop shortcut for the Auto Packager, specify the following in the Target field:

C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager\AutoPackager.exe

and Start in to:

C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager

Alternatively, if you receive the Auto Packager as the packager.zip file, extract this to the C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager folder (create this folder structure if it does not exist).
