Hey everyone, can you tell me if it possible to deploy Itunes, Quicktime, Safari in their native form?  Meaning, not doing a uncompress and doing the msi files.  This is one of those every changing apps that if you sneeze the version changes.  I have a script that will go to the source and download them to the workstation, if i uncompress them i get conflicts with one saying that part is out of date.  
I have tried using /quiet and it produces no results.  I have tried /qb and it appears to install have part or errors out.

In my experience it takes very little time to create an updated package when a new release comes out, once you have the process sorted and documented. Due to the configuration requirements and the desire of many corporates to exclude the Bonjour msi from the iTunes deployment, going the long route is pretty much the only show in town.

uncompressing is too hard for you???

Bearing in mind every app is different, more than likely with those candidates, the upgrade or uninstall is not quite right. If you can remove the old ones (silently) then run your script.

 

I agree with EdT, go with the slightly longer route. remember every app is different, when you think you have sussed out iTunes, the next version will be different, so your tricks and commands may not work (they might, but they might not)

Uncompressing is no problem at all, I do it all the time.  What I was looking for, was to use Power Shell and run a script at the beginning of every week to download the latest versions. In turn these apps would be automatically put on the server share using the same file names, thus the apps would always be up to date. 

I went ahead and added the command to uncompress the files into the directory and modified the script to install the MSI files. So I am good.
Thanks.
