I am running a batch file through SCCM to relaunch Outlook after running the install.

I use the simple command 

start Outlook.exe

and every time is runs the Outlook 2010 Startup Wizard rather then starting up Outlook. I run that command normally as a command prompt and it works fine. Anyone got any ideas? Is it profile related?

  • Try running the command as the user (and setting it to run only when a user is logged on) otherwise it'll launch in the system context.
  • Thanks dunnpy. I will give that a shot. I've been confused between install as user & install as system for certain installs, but since this is a batch file I think it will work.

The SCCM client runs under the SYSTEM account.

You might be able to call this as a user by using RUNAS or AT (Task Scheduler).

 

Curious...What are you installing that requires reloading Outlook?
