I have set up the manaaged install, and forced inventory on the desired machine. I have the .MSP custom file built for silent install and it works when I run setup manually. The zip of the Visio disk gets uploaded(AND unzipped), but then setup.exe does not launch and I get no installation. Am I doing something wrong? Or am I missing something?

Are your .exe and the .msp file in a folder when they unzip? If so, you either need to give it the full path to where they get unzipped, or just zip the .exe and .msp files directly.

As an update to this question I also ended up with the same problem deploying with KACE.

As stated above the issue is that with the zipped file the "setup.exe" doesnt run so the product install doesnt commence.

Provided you have created your custom install file and zipped the product up as above the solution is simply to change the option button from a "Default Installation" to "Override Default Installation" and enter the command line "setup.exe"

Also if you extract the Microsoft Visio 2013 Service Pack 1 (using command line or short-cut switch /extract) and place it into the Updates folder your deployment will be deployed with the service pack applied. Note: There are currently about another 33 updates that are applicable after the service pack
