I have an msi file that I wish to install GPO. The problem is that file has to be installed using msiexec with switches. How do I accomplish this?

Thank you!

Usually when an MSI file is deployed via a GPO it implies the /qn switches.

msiexec.exe /i {yourmisfile.msi} /qn

I am assuming that since your MSI is not deploying correctly it may be requesting other parameters like different properties.  For example I had some MSI deployments of license server clients that needed to have the server name specified in the install path:

msiexec.exe /i {myfile.msi} /qn server=myhostname

To enable this to be deployed by GPO you may be able to use ORCA to edit your MSI or create a Transform File to use with the GPO to include these parameters in the Properties section of the MSI tables.  Take a look at this pervious post:
