How do I embed the deployment code into the installer?

Follow

Our current default download option at my.splashtop.com will download our "Easy deployment" installer which already has the deployment code embedded. However, you can follow these steps below to embed the code manually if you have downloaded the non-custom deployment installer.

Note: Do not run this streamer installer during a remote session to update an existing streamer. It is not silent. It is meant for your customer to manually run.
To update silently during a remote session, run the regular streamer installer (e.g. no deployment code in file name).

1. Get your deployment streamer and 12-digit code

If you don't already have a deployment package, follow the instructions on this support article to create one.

From the deployment package, you will get two important parts required in the next step:

  • Streamer installer for Windows or Mac (must be version 3.0.6.0 or above)
  • 12-digit deployment code

2. Rename the installer file

Append a dash ("-") and the 12-digit deployment code to the file name (just before .exe or .dmg).

Replace 0123456789AB in the examples below with your own deployment code.

For Windows

Original file name: Splashtop_Streamer_Windows_v3.0.6.3.exe

New file name example #1: Splashtop_Streamer_Windows_v3.0.6.3-0123456789AB.exe

New file name example #2: streamer-0123456789AB.exe

For Mac

Original file name: Splashtop_Streamer_MAC_v3.0.6.2.dmg

New file name example #1: Splashtop_Streamer_MAC_v3.0.6.2-0123456789AB.dmg

New file name example #2: streamer-0123456789AB.dmg

3. Send the renamed installer file to your users

Share the renamed installer file with your users, using whatever means you have (e.g. email, Dropbox, download link on your website, etc.).

The user just needs to double click on the installer to launch it. Then it's only 2 clicks for the whole process to complete (UAC and "Confirm" button).
