Windows Software Deployment With TGUP

3 Feb/10

Computers that are bought in stores and those that are build individually do not come with software preinstalled usually. A few options are available to deploy software on those new computer systems like installing each program manually, using custom operating system setups that install applications during the regular OS installation or running a program like TGUP after installation that offers to install multiple software programs without user interaction.

TGUP, which stands for The Great Unattended Project, is a Windows software deployment application that can be used to install popular free software in Windows. The program can be used to either download and install the selected software or to only download it and create a silent installer. The second method can be used for multiple installations on different computer systems or to prepare the setup for a computer without Internet connection.

TGUP is a portable program that will launch a command line window upon execution. The program will automatically identify the operating system and language. Options in the main screen are to download and install software silently (1), download software and create an installer (2) or to change the program’s options (3).

A list of programs will be pulled from the project’s server. Programs are listed under different categories like graphic, system, Internet, multimedia or office.

Checkboxes define if a program will be downloaded or not. A click on an entry will display a description in the right window. The listing contains many popular free programs like Winamp, VLC Media Player, Thunderbird, Opera, firefox (with a selection of add-ons), 7-zip or ImgBurn. The programs offered are usually the latest official versions of the program.

The download will be started with a click on the next button. Each program that has been selected by the user will be downloaded and installed if direct installation has been selected.

TGUP offers a very sophisticated and straightforward method of deploying popular programs in the Windows operating system. The only thing that is missing is an information about the size of the selected programs.

The software can be downloaded from the project’s homepage. The website contains a listing of the included applications. The software deployment tool is compatible with many Windows operating systems including Windows 7.
