MSI Installer not properly installing
I'm trying to install MuseScore 2.0.1. I've downloaded the msi and have tried installing using msiexec /i "MuseScore.msi" /qn on my K1000. The software installs to a point but no desktop icons are created and no entry is in add/remove programs. Equally strange is the fact I'm using the same file on my K2000 as well as the command and that installs fine.
I'm not too sure what's going on here and am at a loss as to explain what's causing this weird result.

Try adding ALLUSERS=1 (all capitals) to the MSIEXEC command line, just before /qn. It may well be that the default for the MSI is to install for the current user which would result in no icons being installed amongst other issues. ALLUSERS set to 1 forces the install for all users of the computer and therefore the icons get installed into the public area rather than into the user profile. Also, the Add/Remove programs entry gets installed to the common area rather than to a user specific area.
