I am trialing the KACE software and thought i would start out simple.
I have a MSI and MST that I already use to install Adobe Reader via a BAT file with these settings

"AcroRead.msi" TRANSFORMS="AcroRead.mst" /qn

This works fine when run from the bat file, but the KACE software always throws up the windows installer window at me



I have tried every possible combination that I can think of and it just will not install.
Can anyone help me with what I am doing wrong?

Firstly, this forum is designed to deal with errors returned by the Windows Installer engine (see the link 'MSI Errors' for examples).

Secondly, there is a dedicated K2000 forum on AppDeploy.

Thirdly, I always - ALWAYS - use explicit paths for deployments, especially when there's "stuff" in the way (e.g. a Kace box, SCCM, Radia, etc.) Tricky here, of course, because Kace uses a random number for the target folder on the client so make use of the handy %~DP0 dodge.

I thought this was a MSI error. live and learn I guess.
I'll give %~DP0 a go, I thought that KACE would add that itself considering it is designed to run on a remote machine..

I changed it to the below and now I don't get the pop up but still does not install. Is there a log somewhere that will give me more information?

/i /qn "%~dp0AcroRead.msi" TRANSFORMS="%~dp0AcroRead.mst"

Should have said there is nothing in the event manager.

you can add the log yourself using the /L command line parameter.

Does this work?
MSIEXEC /i AcroRead.MSI TRANSFORMS="TransformName.mst" REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS /qb

Edit: Sorry about that.. Just noticed that this is a very old thread. :(
