Next, download the package. Once the ZIP package is downloaded and extracted, the user can launch the dynabook Component Installer (DCS) to install all components on a target system.

The DCS application automatically installs all components contained in the project without user interaction. The installer also handles continuation of installations that require a reboot before proceeding.


   dynabook Component Installer Process

A package is containing all the components and the dynabook Component Installer. If a Plug and Play component contains both INF and CAT files, then the component files are also extracted in the ZIP file.

They are located within the PnP folder in the ZIP file. If the user wants to locate any individual driver file, they can go to the PnP folder and retrieve them, or import and use them with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) / Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager (MECM).

The dynabook Installer (TCSInstaller.exe) file is used to begin the installation process. After executing the dynabook Installer the following window is displayed:



In the following table, all available command line script switches for the TCSinstaller.exe are shown:


 Switch    Description
 -s          Will install completely silent
 -scm          Will supply proper SCCM / MECM exit codes
 -show          Will display the process on the screen without user interaction
 -noreboot          Will allow the process to complete without rebooting the computer
 (Microsoft SCM can manage a reboot if necessary)
 -norestorepoint          Skip the check for a restore point
 -logs {\\servername\sharename}          Allow log to be written to location other than default
 -nologs          Turn off log creation



The directory tree extracted from the downloaded SCCM / MECM driver pack is suitable for import into SCCM / MECM via the Import New Driver Wizard:

Clicking the Next button displays the next page of the wizard which displays the list of drivers found in the directory tree specified by the user.

At this point the user can continue forward with the wizard to create an SCCM / MECM driver package and/or add selected drivers to an SCCM / MECM boot image.
