UltraEdit 18 - Silent Installation
Fairly new to the k1000 (and scripting in general), and a little stuck trying to install UltraEdit 18 silently. Trying to use the EXE because I had issues with the MSI not creating a start menu or desktop shortcut. You pass an ISS file to the EXE to give the silent install it's config.
I currently have a distribution task with a zip file as a dependency containing an iss file and the ultraedit exe in the root.
If I enter the following script at the command line, it installs successfully fine - but when I try to use Kace (either as a distribution or scripting task), I get a [ResponseResult][ResultCode=-3] in the log, which is something about a corrupt or missing ISS file. You can see the setup file get called (an icon appears on the taskbar and stays there for some time), but it eventually closes without installing successfully.

I suspect that that's because the installer is writing stuff to the logged-in user's profile. When deploying via Kace, it uses the local System. I'd wager your shortcuts are there, they're just languishing in the System user's profile.
Grab the MSI and do the usual shuffling of components so that you get a user-level feature as a parent of an existing feature which contains an advertised entry-point, normally a shortcut, then deploy. Then, when your users trigger the entry-point, the application will self-heal and install the user-level components.
