I am deploying a MSI through a Kace 1000. When the MSI is deployed the install takes place and I am able to run the app from the app folder location. The problem is that the app does not show up in programs and features or program files. I have had this happen with a completely different app also. I am using the suggested command line from my vendor.

I've seen this before.... Its usually when the application doesn't like to be installed as the system account. Try adding the "ALLUSERS=2" property to the end of your command. You may need to configure manually and type the full command line.

  • Here is an example of the command Line I am putting into KACE distrobution. I tried the "2" with same result. Before I had ""

    msiexec /i "example.msi" EIM_INPUT_SERVERNAMEORIP="server" EIM_INPUT_STANDARDPORT=0000 EIM_INPUT_TRUSTEDPORT=0000 EIM_INPUT_USETRUSTEDPORT=true INSTALLLOCATION="%PROGRAMFILES%\folder\APP" ALLUSERS="2" /qn

What is the method you are using to deploy this? Distribution on script?
Where does it install if you remove the INSTALLLOCATION switch?
Also have you tried using the msiexec /a command with the msi to see if its possible to create a modified installation which you can deploy without most of these switches? Some applications support this.

  • I have now created a batch file and zipped it in with the MSI. In the command line I enter the batch file name. Kace will execute the batch file and the program shows the same behavior as before. Makes a program folder but no shortcut or program file entry or program and feature entry. Now if I run the batch file on my local computer everything installs great....... Why the difference ...ahhhh I am pulling my hair out :)
