Scenarios for deploying the Outlook Time Zone Data Update Tool.


As with any deployment these should be tested to ensure they meet your needs and will operate in your environment.  There are many variations of these possible and the examples do not take into account differences and customizations that exist across environments.  The permissions, source, and command line, could also apply to other deployment mechanisms.

Command Line


This is a typical configuration, first program install the files (requiring administrator rights).  Second executes the files now installed under the context of the logged on user.

administrator


System


TZMove Install Package (8.4MB) from KB931667


Whether or not a user is logged on


tzmove.exe /quiet


2


user


Logged On User


files now on machine


Only when a user is logged on


%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office12\Office Outlook Time Zone Data Update Tool\tzmove.exe /quiet


This is a variation of the above scenario where the patch from KB933146 is applied.  Requires running the install packages centrally with the /extract switch to get the MSI and MSP files.   Installation command line points back to a common share.  This could also be wrapped in an SMS Installer or other package to copy to a known location on the clients.

System


MSI file extracted with “/extract” from 931667, MSP file from 933146


Whether or not a user is logged on


Msiexec.exe /I \\SVR\SHARE\tzmove.msi PATCH=\\SVR\SHARE\tzmove.msp /qn

Logged On User


files now on machine


Only when a user is logged on


%PROGRAMFILES%\Microsoft Office\Office12\Office Outlook Time Zone Data Update Tool\tzmove.exe /quiet


This also uses the MSI taken from the tzmove installation package in KB931667.  Executing the MSI directly with the quiet switch in this manner will install AND execute the tool.  Requires the logged on user have administrator rights on the system.
