Created the package within Orca and saved the file. Used the command: msiexec /i Adobe Shockwave Player 12.0.4.144.msi /qn but the Windows installer errors saying the command is incorrect. If i remove the /qn it will install but not silent. Used the default command, which automatically inputs the /i , which will install but not silent. I tried the /qb, /qn, /q, /quiet but always get the MSi Installer error that the command is incorrect. Even tried a scripted install with the silent command but it fails also. Anyone know why or what the correct command is to install silently???

  • Manual Config Command: msiexec /i Adobe Shockwave Player.msi /qn and msiexec /i Adobe Shockwave Player.msi /qb, along with /q, /s, /quiet, and /silent on the end.

    When i switch it to default command it automatically inputs the /i
    Which will install but not silent. So i put /i /q but it fails tried /qn, /qb, /s, /quiet /silent in front of the /i and after the /i

    I used the direct download from adobe and used the file i downloaded from the distribution portal from adobe
    • Humm, sounds like you have the correct binaries from
      http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html

      err oops i mean

      http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/default/english/win95nt/latest/sw_lic_full_installer.msi#sthash.6uLzg0dQ.dpuf

      Silly question, but I assume you used quotes (:
      I just tested with the download from above and it works fine.
      msiexec /i sw_lic_full_installer.msi /qb /l*vx .\shockwave.log

      One thing to remember is if your testing the cmd in a command window, remember to run the command window as admin! Cos if you use /qb it will suppress the elevation prompt - thats gotten me so many times so use /qb to test first.

      ps. you dont need to /q /s etc. just /qb or /qn will do (unless its some werid msi wrapper which I know shockwave is not)
