[font="microsoft sans serif"]Hi people, hope you all are doing just fine.

I am new to appdeploy.com and to application deploying itself. I'm trying to deploy Google SketchUp 7, silent install. I have found help to do this but with SketchUp 6 [:(] tried to follow them steps wishing it will help but no luck [:@]

Any tips from anyone?

oh btw, I'm using Altiris to deploy.

Thanks in advance people...

That doesn't tell us very much, though, does it?

- Are you able to deploy at all, just not silently?
- Can you deploy the package silently outside of the deployment mechanism?
- Does the deployment fail? If so, what error are you getting?
- Have you logged the install? If so, what does the log tell you?

Sorry VBScab, like I said I am pretty new.

- Are you able to deploy at all, just not silently? nope, cannot install at all
- Can you deploy the package silently outside of the deployment mechanism? nope cannot deploy it at all
- Does the deployment fail? If so, what error are you getting? yep i get the message below

Invalid command line argument. Consult the Windows Installer SDK for detailed command line help.

See the setup log file located at 'C:\DOCUME~1\urulm\LOCALS~1\Temp\VSD10A.tmp\install.log' for more information.

- Have you logged the install? If so, what does the log tell you? log tells me the following:

I know its not an .msi file but for some reason thats what it takes it as...

The "GoogleSketchUpWEN.exe" is a wrapper which extracts the "GoogleSketchUp7.msi", use that instead.

According to the post above it's located in a subfolder in the %temp% folder. Start the installation and when the dialog displayed check for the MSI there.
