I've got this MSi package that installs just fine when you run it manually, but when you push it with SMS it runs with an exit code of 0, but nothing gets installed on the machine.

I can't find anything unusual in the MSI log, except that it's not installing anything.

I tried different ALLUSERS values and ADDLOCAL=ALL, but those don't seem to make a difference.

Any ideas?

thepuma66,

How are you adding the MSI to SMS?

Are you creating a "New Package", or a "New Package From Definition"?

In the past I've found that if you just add a package with the correct command line it may not play.
If you create a package from a definition (just give it the MSI file), and then modify the command line in the program for MST and logging, then you may find it will work.

Weird SMS behaviour!

Hope this points you in the right direction,

The MSI-log should tell you why it doesnt do anything, from my experience. Are you running it at full detail level?
