don’t make a single fixlet or task to deploy all of the software.
You need to make a fixlet or task for each application separately, test each one, then put them all together in a baseline to deploy to new clients.
Software that is installed ondemand can be deployed as an “offer” that users can select themselves to install. If you don’t want users to be able to install Acrobat themselves, then you would just deploy it after they request it.
BigFix can’t be used to install BigFix. You will generally put the BigFix client in the imaging process, or deploy through Active Directory, or Client Deploy Tool, or manually.
This example is outdated, but a good place to start:
7zip is provided through the C3 content and I would strongly recommend it as a free alternative to WinZip. It works much better and is free.
There is also an option for WinZip in the Fixlet Maker Dashboard. I do not know if it still works without testing it.
Where do you download this from? What is the vendor provided documentation for silent installation?
All of the above examples are potentially outdated, but can be used as a basis for installing a newer version of the same software with minor modifications.
