Install Add-Ins - Windows Server Essentials
Applies To: Windows Server 2012 R2 Essentials
To include add-ins on all server or client computers install them before creating an image. These add-ins are automatically included on all computers replicated using that image. There are two methods for installing add-ins:
Run the .wssx file. If you install by using a .wssx file, the add-in can be uninstalled through the Add-In Manager.
Install individual add-in files by following the guidance in the Windows Server Solutions SDK for each type of add-in. If you install the individual files, the add-in is not managed from the Add-In Manager.
Any software that is installed or downloaded on the server (including Dashboard tabs and health notifications) should have a localized interface that matches the language of the operating system that is installed on the server.
