Deploy MSI software with commands via GP?

Guest

Hi - I am trying to install a software package via group policy and have come
across a user doing the following;

"I use the following command to distribute..."

msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /t 1031.MST ISSETUPDRIVEN=1

Can somebody please explain to me how this command line is executed when
deploying software vai GP?

regards,

stompin

You can just deploy your QuickTime package by using "Advanced" and add
the 1031.MST file at the tab "Modifications". I'm not sure what your MST
file contains at the end. But if you really need to set
"ISSETUPDRIVEN=1" as well, you'll need to create an additional MST file
or alter your msi file. You can do this with Orca. It's freeware and a
part of the Windows Deployment Kit.

cheers,

Florian

Hi,

I am trying to install a MSI package via a GP. The issue I have established so far is that the MSI when run by double clicking is that it asks questions, i.e. it is interactive. I have also determined that there is a quite switch that will install it with no prompts if run from the command line. However I cannot see how I can run the MSI from the GP and include the quite switch.

Can anyone help?

Thanks,

jonathanr
