Configuration Changes for many tablet pcs

Discussion in 'Tablet PC' started by nadya, Jul 7, 2003.

    I will need to make configuration changes and installs
    for about 60 tablet pcs. these changes will be the same
    for all tablets, therefore I was wondering if there was a
    way to make these changes without me having to manually
    change each tablet.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Since Windows XP Tablet PC Edition is just a superset of Windows XP
    Professional, all the tools and tricks that are available for Windows XP
    work fine on the Tablet PC. These include WMI and scripting in general, and
    the whole range of deployment tools -- both MS deployment tools, and third
    party ones. What is best for your particular situation will depend on a
    variety of factors, including the changes you need to make, the level of
    sophistication of your users and your administrators, and the general
    corporate environment and infrastructure available.

    Please, all replies to the newsgroup.

    What specific settings are you trying to change?

    Some thoughts:

    Imaging (Symantec Ghost et. al.) - setup a base machine
    the way you want it and create an image that you then
    deploy to other machines before deployment

    Using the All Users folder - You can customize settings
    for a base user, then copy those changes to the All Users
    folder under Documents and Settings. Then, anyone who
    logs onto the machine will get those settings. This does
    not work for everything, but for many settings. You could
    copy this folder out to your network, then pull it down
    for each machine to the All Users folder.

    Hope it helps.
