I am trying to install Visual Studio 2010 using the K1000. The issue I am having is that the zip file downloads to the remote computer (C:\programdata\dell\kace\downloads\2) but then deletes after a few seconds.

KUSERALERT_MESG.. file reports "Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Professional - ENU @(DLFailed)" . I can run the same unzipped package on a local machine and Visual Studio 2010 installs.

How I am deploying:

I have zipped the whole package which is about 2.2 GB by copying the zip file to the "clientdrop" and associated the package with VS2010 software within the K1000. Within the zip file I have a batch file that calls the setup.exe with an unattend file. See below:

echo off
.\setup\setup.exe /q /unattendfile VS2010_deployment.ini


Under Distrubution I am calling the batch file by using "Configure Manually". Nothing else is checked.

I checked the Windows Logs and nothing shows any errors. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Did you try checking "Do not prepend MSIEXE"?

Thanks for the reply! I just checked "Do not prepend MSIEXE" and the same results.

I tried to create a MI with our AutoCAD installer (also large) and associate it with the zip in the client drop, but it failed in the same way. Support reported it as a bug with large MIs. I ended up using a script, so it sounds like the same bug is still present.

Thanks Casey! Good to know! It was driving me crazy. I have not done a scripted installation from the K1000. I have a script that connects to a network share to install Visual Studio 2010 but it is using the AT command. I am curious, when you scripted your installation did you create a new Script and under "Remediation" did you choose "Run a batch file"? Paste your script in the text field and run the script.

Here is what I have:

echo off
net use n: \\server\kace\VS2010 /user:domain\kace Password /persistent:no

n:setup\setup.exe /q /unattendfile \\server\kace\VS2010\VS2010_deployment.ini

Net use n: /delete


Thanks,
David

I created a setup.bat (used to be in my MI) in the network share, then in the script told it to Launch "\\saserver01\Software\AutoCAD2012x64\setup.bat".

That said, I like MIs more, and just had a thought. I'm going to try using just my batch file as my MI for AutoCAD (to then call the network installer) and see how it goes.
