    Using packageboot to run command line

    SolarWinds Community Team

      After installing Java 6 update 26 we want to run the following command to turn off the next generation plug-in:


      “C:\Program Files\Java\jre\bin\ssvagent.exe" -high -jpisetup -old

      How can this be accomplished?  Do I need to put the command inside a batch file and execute it using the packageboot?  The instructions in the XML only make reference to .exe's that you include with the package itself.

          In the Local Publishing Administration Guide, you'll find this documentation:


          The postexecution phase provides for two types of declarations: <programs> and <services> to identify programs to be executed and services to be stopped or started. The attributes for the <program> and <service> elements of the postexecution phase include all of the attributes defined for these elements in the preexecution phase. Additionally, the <program> element of the postexecution phase provides four additional attributes: path, pathtype, regpath, and regvalue to specify the execution of a program file contained elsewhere in the filesystem. The pathtype attribute can have one of two values: "simplepath" where the path attribute specifies a complete pathname, with or without the use of environment variables; and regprependpath, which makes use of the regpath and regvalue to identify the location of the program executable.

          So, the appropriate syntax for your example would be:

              <program type="exe" typeaction="runandwait" name="ssvagent.exe" pathtype="simplepath" path="%programfiles%\Java\jre\bin" successcode="0" failureaction="stop" enabled="true">
                  -high -jpisetup -old
