Best way to install files remotely

2 posts in this topic

I have a list of about 20+ scripts that I need to run in succession, one after the other, as well as allow the user to select which script to run. I figure the best way to do this is to first install all the files remotely, then invoke a master script that will call all of them in succession ( I would use PSTools to call it remotely).

My question is, what would be the best way to install this 20+ exe's to the remote machine?

Thanks!

You can include the files in the copiled executable, and it will be extracted and installed at runtime, providing that does not violate licensing. Or just invoke/call them from a network share, etc.

My personal preference would be to recode the 20+ scripts as #include files containing functions, then include and call them in the master script. Takes some effort to resolve Local/Global variable naming, etc., but much more easily maintained thereafter.

Hope that helps. :)
