[fa icon="plus-square"] 2. How do I deploy BridgeChecker to multiple machines?

This following instructions are for Windows BridgeChecker Versions 1.9.6 and earlier:

BridgeChecker software is provided as an MSI file and can be deployed by Microsoft SCCM (System Center Configuration Manager). The same license key can be used for multiple machines.

[fa icon="plus-square"] 5. How do I copy configuration settings to identical machines?

Configuration settings can be saved while in the "Config Manager" mode. These include adapter changes, policy changes, and password changes.

For machines with identical hardware, the settings.mdb file can be copied to and overwrite the file in the folder below to deploy the same identical configuration to multiple machines quickly.  BridgeChecker services should be stopped on all systems before deployment of the settings.mdb file.

BridgeChecker stores configuration settings in the c:\ProgramData\AccessAgility\BridgeChecker\settings.mdb file.


NOTE: The c:\ProgramData folder is hidden by default. Setting can be changed from Control Panel > Folder Options > View Tab
