Has anyone did a MS-DOS batch file with the End Note Upgrade application? I had encountered an issue where the process is almost near completion but it hangs and not complete the process. Please provide some feedback. I would appreciate it. Thank you

This is the batch file:
"\\%server%\Apps\5 DMCN Templates\LogFile.vbs"
if exist "%LogFolder%\%AppName%.log" goto :%AppName%
msiexec /i "\\%server%\apps\EndNote\Upgrade\Automated\ENX4Inst.msi" transforms="\\%server%\apps\EndNote\Upgrade\Automated\ENX4Inst.mst" /qb- /l* %LogFolder%\%AppName%.log
REM copy /y "\\%server%\Apps\EndNote\Automated\EndNotex4\EndNotex4.lnk" "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Desktop"
CACLS "C:\Program Files\EndNote X4" /T /E /G users:F
"\\%server%\apps\5 DMCN Templates\license.vbs"
"C:\Program Files\EndNote X4\EndNote.exe"
:%AppName%


The process is at it completion. It reached to the window" Please wait while Windows configures EndNote X4. Time remaining: 0 seconds. It would just hang at that screen. I then canceled and reinstalled it, and it hangs at the same spot.

You had the prescience to specify a log file. Use a decent text editor (i.e. anything which isn't Notepad or Wordpad) to open the log file during the "hang". It should detail the action which is running at that time. That should provide some clue as to what's (not) happening.
