Note: The Maker App is now deprecated and no longer supported. Boards now connect directly through the browser, so no app is needed to access the Maker Toolkit. Click here to learn more.
We support a few approaches for installing Code.org Maker App to a group of computers on a school network.
Our recommended approach is to conduct a silent install using the installer we've provided on the downloads page. It accepts the following command switches:
- /S (case-sensitive) puts the installer in "silent" mode for unattended install
- /D=<directory> (also case-sensitive) lets you specify an install directory from the command line
Code.org Maker App-1.1.5-win.exe /S /D="C:\Program Files\Code.org Maker App"
Windows Installer package (MSI)
Windows network administrators may find this is the easiest approach to deploy the Code.org Maker App to computers on a network. Please note that auto-updates are disabled when the app is installed via MSI. You can download the Windows Installer here: https://downloads.code.org/maker/Code.org%20Maker%20App-1.1.9-win.msi
If you wish to install it for all users on a machine, the MSI can be installed for all users on a machine using the ALLUSERS=1 property.
