WinOffline is a utility designed to simplify Client Automation patching and automate common maintenance procedures. It's a multi-purpose application with two operating modes:
Interactive mode (double-clicking and running WinOffline.exe) allows you to run WinOffline locally on any endpoint with Client Automation installed. The user interface enables you to review Client Automation patch history, apply new patches, remove installed patches, or run any of the built-in maintenance procedures.
Software Delivery mode enables you to deliver WinOffline silently, without interrupting the end-user, using Software Delivery. WinOffline automatically detects it's running under Software Delivery, silently stops Client Automation services, carries out the specified maintenance, restarts Client Automation services, and reports back informative results to Software Delivery's job output.
This document describes an optional maintenance built-in to WinOffline, to cleanup software delivery files present on the target system(s):
- Cleanup the Deliveries folder:
- Cleanup the agent activate folder:
- Cleanup the server activate folder:
- Cleanup the DTS agent folder, including the index file:
Note: You can use WinOffline without applying or removing any patches, in order to run maintenance on these directories.
How do you configure WinOffline to run the built-in software delivery cleanup procedures?
