Microsoft SCCM deployment

NVivo Add-In for OneNote

The NVivo Add-In for OneNote allows users to export content from OneNote for import into NVivo 11 Windows (or NVivo 10 Windows Service Pack 1 or later) .

This topic explains how to use Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 (SCCM) to install the NVivo Add-In for OneNote to client machines without requiring user interaction. Microsoft SCCM uses packages to distribute software to client machines. A package represents a software application to be installed on a client computer.

This document guides you through the process of deploying the NVivo Add-In for OneNote using SCCM—downloading the source file, creating the package, creating the program and advertising the package.

Step 1 - Check system requirements

Make sure the client machines that you are distributing the software to meet the following system requirements:

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1

  • Microsoft OneNote 2007 or 2010

  • Microsoft Word 2007 or 2010

  • .NET Programmability Support for Microsoft Office (OneNote) must be enabled.

Step 2 - Download the source file

Before you can create the package, the NCapture source file must be available in a source directory on a file share (e.g. \\FileServer\SourceDirectory) that is accessible by the Configuration Manager and the client machines.

You can download the latest version of the NVivo Add-In for OneNote from the QSR website.

Step 4 - Create a program for the package

Now that you have downloaded the source file, you are ready to create the package.

The package needs a program that defines the command line parameters to use when installing the software and specifies system requirements and other run options.

To create a new SCCM program:

  1. To launch the Configuration Manager Console, click Start, point to All Programs, click Microsoft System Center, click Configuration Manager 2007, and then click ConfigMgr Console.

  2. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Distribution / Packages.

  3. Expand the package that you want to create a program for.

  4. Right-click the Programs folder, click New, and then click Program.

The New Program Wizard opens.

  1. On the General page, enter a descriptive name for the program.

  2. In the Command line, type the command line that will be used to execute the program (or click Browse to select a batch file).

Step 5 - Advertise the package

Now everything is set up, you need to create an advertisement for the package that will be sent to the client machines.

To advertise the package:

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Software Distribution / Advertisements.

  2. Right-click on Advertisements, and then click New / Advertisement.

The New Advertisement Wizard is displayed.

  1. Enter a descriptive name for the advertisement and (optionally) a comment, then select the NCapture package created in Step 3 - Create the package.

  2. Select the collection (of client machines) that you want to advertise the package to. For example, a collection of Windows 7 machines.

  3. Click Next.

  4. On the Schedule page, select the dates and times that you want the package to run.

  5. Continue through the wizard, selecting your preferred options, and then click Finish to create the advertisement.

At the scheduled time and date SCCM sends the package to the client machines. When these machines recognize that the package is available, the installation process begins.
