I deployed a .MSI file via SCCM and it hangs and never finishes. It also won't write anything to the log file. I have this command line.

 

"C:\WINDOWS\system32\msiexec.exe" /i /q "C:\MSIs\QuickTime.msi" /L*V+! "c:\build\AppleQT.log"

It hangs in TaskMan and never finishes and does not create the AppleQT.log file. Is there anything wrong with my syntax?

msiexec /i "C:\MSIs\QuickTime.msi" /q  /L*V+! "c:\build\AppleQT.log"

The problem is that you didn't have the path to the file directly after the /i. This will cause problems.

  • Also, as far as I know you really don't know need the full path to the msiexec command.
  • You do not need the full path to any executable that is findable via the search path of windows.

That means, it's unable to start the installation process..

Execute the following command without /q and see what error you are getting.

msiexec /i "C:\MSIs\QuickTime.msi" /L*V+! "c:\build\AppleQT.log"

Also, check C:\build folder is existing or not

is the MSI service running properly?

Check and update your windows installer if required.

Do you have AppleApplicationSupport installed? I think it's a requirement for Quicktime and needs to be installed before you start the installation of Quicktime.

I might be wrong though, been a while since my last Quicktime package.
