# Where is software deployment portal?

I see all of the discussions about the software deployment portal but I am unable to find it on the computers that have the agent installed.  I did choose to remove the LANDesk entry out of the startmenu for the sake of not notifiying the users about our installation.  I know that if it was there I would have the link, but I need some help now.

What link should I use for this?  Is this a path in the C:\Program Files....

Thanks

For Version 8.7 Try this:

http://localhost:9595/webportal/webportal.exe

You can copy the above link into a shortcut and place it in the appropriate location for users to run.

Rick, thanks for pointing out the different versions.

"C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\policy.client.portal.exe"

Note Ravi's Post is for 8.7 mine is for 8.8... Not sure which you need...

I had 8.7 when I created my agent deployment .exe files and distributed to all computers at our company.  Since then I have upgraded to 8.8 but have not pushed out any new agents to the computers that already have the agent installed on them.

OK...

I may be wrong on this but Im pretty sure the 8.7 portal is not going to work anymore against an 8.8 core server... You can still use AMClient on the 8.7 workstations but I am unsure how that will function against an 8.8 backend either. Your best bet here is get the agents upgraded.

I used the link http://localhost:9595/webportal/webportal.exe  in my browser and the portal does show up, however nothing is listed.  This is what I see.  How do I get applications to show up for people to install?  I already have a lot of packages created in my LANDesk console.  Am I missing something here?

Thanks

you need to schedule optional policies to the workstations in question.
