This KB works for 2019 versions and before.



In the 2019.3 and later the method changes slightly.

  1. Capture Tableau in the normal fashion.
  2. after the install BEFORE clicking on finish run the following command.
  3. "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau 2021.2\bin\uninstallanchorservice" "Tableau Software Inc." "Tableau 2021.2"
  4. this will uninstall
  5. Finish
  6. playback Tableau
  7. make a bat file with the following
  8. "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau 2021.2\bin\installanchorservice"  "Tableau Software Inc." "Tableau 2021.2"
  9. Add a script to configure, post activate and save


  • Is this for Desktop or Reader? Reader seems to package without issue but I've struggled with Tableau Desktop because of the Flexnet activation service.

    I’m pretty sure this is desktop as the flex net license is part of the install.

    This is way better than what i found to work lol.

    I was able to get it to work with the following batch script post deploy. Found out they made another change and the ACL SSDL script is no longer needed.

    a band aide if I ever saw one

    @echo off

    "C:\Program Files\Tableau\Tableau 2021.1\bin\custactutil.exe" -localrepair > c:\temp\tab.txt
