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.

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 :)
