I'm having issues with some of my post-install tasks now, after upgrading to 3.6:

 

Intel HD Drivers setup - the command line used to work, but no longer does. I tried zipping up a batch file with it, and calling the batch file, but still fails:

 setup.exe -overwrite -s

CDBurnerXP - this is a simple MSI file that is failing for some reason too. Tried re-zipping and calling with a batch file. No luck.

 msiexec.exe /i "cdbxp_setup_x64_4.5.0.3717.msi" /passive

Paint.NET - another MSI that is failing for some reason. Tried re-zipping and calling with a batch file. No luck.

 msiexec.exe /i PaintDotNet.x86.msi /passive

Wifi Configuration Script. Always called it with a batch file. Still not working

 netsh wlan add profile filename="Wireless Network Connection-CUSD200-Staff.xml"

First, you don't want to use quotes anymore, the task engine should take care of that for you.

With MSI files, you always want the /i switch last, so CDBurnerXP would be:

msiexec.exe /i "cdbxp_setup_x64_4.5.0.3717.msi" /passive - See more at: http://www.itninja.com/question/more-3-6-woes-post-install-tasks-having-issues#sthash.RbwYxyIf.dpuf

msiexec.exe /passive /i cdbxp_setup_x64_4.5.0.3717.msi

Paint.net would be

msiexec.exe /passive /i PaintDotNet.x86.msi

The Wifi Config, should work, and we have worked with customers with the same issue.  The commandline you use should be in a batch file.  Then zip up the batch file and the xml file together.

 

I'm not sure about the intel one, though it would be handy for you to include the tasks.xml file for this deployment (or at least those tasks).

  • Thanks, Corey. I'll test this out tomorrow at the office and report back. The wifi config has always been done the same way you describe. It's weird, as all of these post install tasks worked before, but perhaps are broken with the new engine. All of my MSI post-install tasks are msiexec /i file.msi /passive, and they work fine (about 40 post install tasks), so it's weird that only a few are failing.
    • FYI - all of the installers failed again. (CDBurnerXP, Paint.NET). I tried creating a new post install task for the Intel Drivers, and that fails as well. Because the intel video drivers fail, I run into another error later on after a reboot caused by video drivers - this needs to be fixed. I'm doing the installs exactly as suggested and still can't get them to install. 3.6 broke certain things and I have no way to resolve them.
