ODMS can be distributed to client users and PC's using Group Policy.

Before beginning a deployment, please ensure the software MSI package and the customised MST package are in a shared folder which is accessible to all the Olympus users and computers to install the software. If you haven’t created an MST package please follow the MST creation guide.

A Group Policy Object should be created for Dictation Module and another for Transcription Module.

  • Right click the new Group Policy Object and select "Edit...".

Please ensure the software MSI package and the customised MST package are in a shared folder which is accessible to all the Olympus users and computers to install the software. If you haven’t created an MST package please follow the MST creation guide.

You will require the following details when creating a batch file:

  • UNC path to "ODMSClient.msi"
  • UNC path to "ODMS_DM.mst" and "ODMS_TM.mst"

The batch file should be saved in the same folder as ODMSClient.msi. It is recommended to create two batch files, one to install the Dictation Module and one to install the Transcription Module.

Each batch file should be named to reflect the module of software being installed, for example, DM.bat and TM.bat.

To create a batch file:

  • Open a new notepad document
  • Enter the following text: msiexec.exe /i "UNC path to ODMSClient.msi" TRANSFORMS="UNC path to ODMS_DM.mst" /qb

ODMS client workgroup installation 23

  • Choose "File" > "Save As" to save the document as a batch file.
