Script giving false positive "success". Not actually working.
First post here. Be gentle. =P
I have just started playing with scripts to get software installed/uninstalled using the MSI wizard and I am finding it very hit and miss. What works for one bit of software doesn't for another and to add to that it only works once and never again on the same machine.
Using my machine as a testbed, I have been able to deploy and uninstall various bits of software, but only once.
E.g. I was able to deploy 7zip x64 as a test and then uninstall it fine. Now subsequent attempts to reinstall on the same machine are "succeeding" but are in actual fact not succeeding at all.
Then a different variation of the issue was where deployment of Adobe Flash Player "succeeded" but didn't work at all.
I have checked the run status logs to see what they reveal and as expected they dont show anything going wrong.
They do however reference a registry entry which doesn't exist, on my machine at least.
I have no HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Kace\ entry in my registry, which looks to be where Kace stores all its data on whats installed and whats not.
Please let me know if there is any info that I have left out that would be of use and I will do my best to provide it ASAP.
Thanks in advance.

This doesn't answer your question per se, but I would strongly recommend using the Distribution > Managed Installations screen for handling software installs/uninstalls. I've personally had more luck with these and they make tracking things much easier.
