Mass Deploying LanSchool Teacher for Windows

The teacher.msi can be deployed using a software distribution tool like Group Policy, SCCM, or PDQDeploy  (Intune not currently supported).  Below are command-line options to install LanSchool.

Run msiexec.exe and each value should be set to a non-null value such as 1 to enable that feature. Msiexe.exe command-line parameters are found by running msiexec.exe. Msiexec.exe is a Microsoft program.

CHANNEL=“X” Installs LanSchool with the Teacher Channel X. “X” must be an integer number from 1 to 16000.

ADVANCED_OPTIONS Required to set any of the following advanced options.

AD_SECURE_MODE When set to a non-null value, requires the Teacher or Student to enter Active Directory Security Mode. Only Teachers that are a member of the Domain User Group “LanSchool Teachers” will be able to manage those Students.

SECURE_MODE When set to a non-null value, the Password Secure version of the product is installed that requires a password be entered on the teacher console to connect to Student computers, which must also be installed in this mode.

PASSWORD A password is required when turning on Password Secure mode.

PASSWORD_CONFIRM Confirmation of the password is required when turning on Password Secure mode.

TASK_MANAGER_LIMIT An advanced option, that when set to a non-null value, allows the Teacher to decide to limit or not limit Task Manager and Activity Monitor.

ENABLECHANNELSELECT When set to a non-null value, allows the Teacher to change channels to view one or more classrooms.

ALLOW_DUMP_UPLOADS When set to 1 allows the problem reports to be uploaded to Stoneware.

LCS=IP Address of LanSchool Connection Service Will setup the student to communicate with the LanSchool Connection Service

ALLOW_BECOME_STUDENT=1 this will allow the teacher console to use the option to become a student if both clients are installed on a shared computer


For example:

ADVANCED_OPTIONS=1
ALLOW_BECOME_STUDENT=1

For example, if you want to silently install a Password Secure mode Teacher on channel 3, with a password of “test”, your script should look like this:

  1. msiexec.exe /i "\teacher.msi" /qn ADVANCED_OPTIONS=1 SECURE_MODE=1 PASSWORD=test PASSWORD_CONFIRM=test CHANNEL=3 LCS=192.168.2.3
