Using SYSTEM account for automatic updates

Postby gibbie99 » Thu Aug 06, 2015 1:28 pm

This took me a while.

Basically you remove the user /password in the Schedule Task command in IA, and set the program option to be /s /update, and uncheck "Interactive task".

What this does is use the SYSTEM user to run the update non-interactively (the /s command and unchecking the 'interactive task'). This is great for when you want others to run the update or if you do not want to depend on the users password never changing (which it should change often)

~InstallAware Clipboard Data~
~Schedule Task~
~{DC2C25F7-5CF6-4653-9CF2-675761C5A9E9}~
~$TITLE$ Updates~

~TRUE~
~$UPDATE_DATE$~
~$UPDATE_TIME$~
~TRUE~
~FALSE|FALSE~
