How To Install Quickmap Via SCCM

To install Quickmap via SCCM, you simply have to:

  1. Install a server installation of Quickmap to install the data on a centrally accessible file server.
  2. Create a package in SCCM pointing to the Quickmap installer (with command line parameters to install Quickmap silently as a software only / client install)
  3. Create a collection of computers to install Quickmap to (if you don’t already have an existing collection)
  4. Create an advertisement to advertise the package to the computers in the collection

You will also need to consider registration of the Quickmap installations. This can be done by either:

  • Creating another package that writes your Registration Key Number to the registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Qkey\Option\Default (which can be run in an SCCM sequence or a separate package)
  • Using AD Group Policy Preferences to write your Registration Key Number to the registry HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Qkey\Option\Default (:!: Note: This will be a Computer Configuration policy, rather than a User one, as it is stored in the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT part of the registry which Domain Users don’t have access to write to by default)

Both the above options will then enter this registration key into Quickmap by default when the user starts Quickmap; the user will then have to click Register Quickmap the first time it starts. Note: if the user is not an administrator, each user logging onto the computer will have to register Quickmap the first time they run it.

Alternatively if autoregister.lic exists in the Quickmap Data folder (e.g. Z:\Data) then QuickMap will register itself online without asking for any input from the user. A dialog box is displayed while this registration process is in progress.

See this article for more information on enabling auto-registration in Quickmap.
