Installing MSDN apps with SCCM RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want to create a package to push out Visual Studio 2013 using SCCM 2012. My question is can I push it out and then apply the individual license keys to each installation? I would visit each desktop and put in that users key.

  • Hey Walt,

    I'm not actually familiar with SCCM well enough to know how that process works.  Probably a better place to ask that is over on the Visual Studio Setup forum (to see if their product supports the installation) or over in an SCCM related forum on MSDN.

    In terms of licensing if they're all MSDN Subscribers, you are probably fine fine completing this task with MSDN-supplied media, but you should review the Visual Studio and MSDN Licensing Whitepaper linked on this page:  Its a long document but its got pretty clearly laid out sections for different scenarios.  There's one called "Distribution as a part of an Installation Image" that might be right up your alley.

    Hope this helps!  Let me know what other questions you have.
