I'm trying to push out software (SlickEdit Pro 2014) through the K1000 appliance. I've uploaded a zip file with the .msi file and the .mst that SlickEdit provides. However, when the software goes to install I get a message that basically gives me all of the windows installer commands and information. I believe this is because WIndows thinks there is something wrong with my script. This is what I have listed in KACE:

msiexec /a "se_19000205_win32.msi" TRANSFORMS="se2014un_32.mst" /qn

What's the issue here?

msiexec /i se_19000205_win32.msi TRANSFORMS=se2014un_32.mst /qn

worked fine after running in an elevated command prompt.

can you post a screen shot of the MI?  Make sure you checked "don't prepend MISEXEC.EXE"

  • I'm not quite sure what you need a screenshot of. An error message? Also, I tried using this script outside of KACE and got the same error. So apparently something in the script is wrong, and not the way I used KACE. I placed that file in teh same folder as the msi and mst files, so I don't think it thinks those are missing.

    I made sure to check the "don't prepend" option.
    • I see what may be wrong /a is for administrative install
      use an /i and move /qn in front of the transform call

      msiexec /i "se_19000205_win32.msi" /qn Tranforms="se2014un_32.mst"
      • Turns out I wasn't running in an elevated command prompt. After I moved into an elevated prompt it worked. *facepalm
