Ooh OK that makes more sense, sorry for the confusion!
This is definitely possible: you would use the
Deploy a Package step running on the server itself, to some known path like
C:\MyPackage, then use a
Run a Script step to invoke your exe from
One big caveat here: this is fine if the exe is related to your deployment process; but if your exe is some running app or service, you shouldn’t be running it out of the Octopus Cloud instance. I suspect that would be a violation of our acceptable usage policy, but more importantly, if we have to replace the underlying VM for any reason your app would stop running. So it wouldn’t be reliable for hosting anything out of.
Hopefully this all makes sense!
