XCOPY Deployment

Running Seq without the MSI installer

Seq is XCOPY-deployable, which means you don't have to run the MSI package to get Seq set up on a machine. This can be useful if you're automating deployment, or running on a workstation on which you don't want to, or can't, install system-level software.

The MSI is, however, the only distribution format currently used, so you'll need to install Seq on at least one computer to extract the necessary files.

XCOPY-deploying Seq

Here are the steps to take.

  1. Install Seq on a convenient machine
  2. Stop the Seq service by running seq.exe stop
  3. Create a zip file with the contents of C:\Program Files\Seq
  4. Extract the zip file on the target machine
  5. Configure and start Seq using the command-line
