To install the Cloudhouse Auto Packager:

  1. From a computer with Internet access, login to the Cloudhouse portal (using the account we provided you).

Note

If the computer on which you want to install the Auto Packager does not have Internet access, see the Installing the Auto Packager on a Computer without Internet Access section for details of how to install the Auto Packager.

  1. Select Downloads and select Auto Packager which downloads cloudhouseautopackagerlauncher.exe
  2. Once downloaded, double-click cloudhouseautopackagerlauncher.exe to launch the Auto Packager and run a check to ensure you are running the latest version (if you are not, any updates are applied before the Auto Package is launched to ensure you are producing the Container with the latest version of the binaries).

Installing the Auto Packager on a Computer without Internet Access

If the computer on which you are packaging the application does not have Internet access, use the following process to install the Auto Packager.

Note

Using this method to install the Auto Packager is not recommended as the Auto Packager does not check for any updates each time it loads.

To install the Auto Packager on a computer without Internet access:

  1. Download and install the Auto Packager on a computer with Internet access.
  2. Navigate to the C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager folder and copy this and its contents to the Packaging Computer (if it is reachable on the network), or to a USB key. Either way, ensure the folder and its contents are created on the Packaging Computer in exactly the same location as the computer they were copied from.

Tip

If you want to create a desktop shortcut for the Auto Packager, specify the following in the Target field:

C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager\AutoPackager.exe

and Start in to:

C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager

Alternatively, if you receive the Auto Packager as the packager.zip file, extract this to the C:\ProgramData\Cloudhouse\Packager folder (create this folder structure if it does not exist).
