I have a .msp for Symantec Antivirus Corp Ed 10 that I have to somehow deploy to 1700 PC's. I thought I could slipstream it into the .msi and then redeploy it to all PC's, but I can't get the msp incorporated into the msi. I was using this syntax (this is for Office, but I was of course changing it for my Symantec patch):

c:\msiexec /a c:\temp\office2003\pro11.msi /p c:\temp\adminupdates\Office2003sp1\mainsp1ff.msp SHORTFILENAMES=1

I don't get any errors, but when its done if I install the .msi it still installs the base version, not the patched version. What am I doing wrong?

Do an administrative install of the msi first. (msiexec /a <path to .msi>)
Do an admin install of the patch to the msi in the directory from the admin install above. (msiexec /p <path to .msp> /a <path to .msi>) point to the admin install directory.

I agree with Angel do the admin install first and then apply the patch, it would work.
