I am pushing a software upgrade using KACE but it forces outlook to close everytime... Here is the command softwareupgrade.exe /quiet which calls on the zip package.  Any ideas on how to make this completly silent without automatically forcing outlook to close?

What is the software that you are trying to install?

  • Symantec Netbackup to Symantec DLO upgrading from 6.0 to 7.0. Running locally does not force outlook to quit.
    • Use the commands here: http://www.symantec.com/business/support/index?page=content&id=TECH137695
      • Thank you! I have seen this article but not sure how I would push this using KACE. Sorry for all the questions.
  • How are you trying to upgrade? Through a MI or a script?

    If a MI, use this to try and install on a test machine: https://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/How-to-mimic-running-a-script-as-Local-System-User-Scripting

    If that installs with the commands from the link above, you will be able to use a MI or a script (without using run as in the script).

    If not, you will have to use a script and change the runas options.

    Also, if it still tries to close Outlook when using psexec, you may have to contact Symantec to see what they recommend.
    • Great Thanks Jknox for all your help as always. Much Appreciated, I will update this thread on how it goes.
    • Jknox the test worked locally on the system with PSExec. Can you advise how I would package this up as a MI to push through KACE? Your help is much appreciated.
      • The same command you used in psexec should work in a MI. Check the box for "don't prepend msiexec". That should do it.
