Stubborn application install - Sametime 8.0.1
I've been working on a CMD script to update workstations from Lotus Sametime 7.0 to Sametime 8.0.1 version. The setup.bat file IBM supplied with the software provides a complex command line running an MSI built SETUP.EXE file with numerous switches that works flawlessly while logged in to Windows, but craps out when trying to run pre-gina. It bombs without an error, terminates my script without advancing further or waiting the full timeout set up for application installations (20 minutes, it bombs about 2-3 minutes into it). The log file it creates (install.log) is no help. I'm desperately trying to automate the process, as manually installing the update for 150-200 clients (and rising) would be a LOT more work than tweaking the package. Plus it introduces more human factor into it than I want: I've got a document for the manual process, and our technicians are good, but I don't want to put extra work on them if I can help it, and my instructions are a bit arduous. Suggestions or tips?
