Unattended install of .msi (msiexec.exe /qn /i ) hangs if user not logged on - GMetrixSMS 4.1.2.x
GMetrixSMS 4.1.2.x unattended installI’m running into an install issue that I have not encountered with any other .MSI setup; Installation hangs when trying to deploy the software unattended.
For example, if I log in and run ‘msiexec.exe /qn /I <file>’, the installation runs fine.
However, If I deploy from Altiris, and I am not logged in, the installation just hangs. If I give msiexec a logfile parameter, no log file is written. If I deploy and I am logged in, installation succeeds.
To successfully push this software, I must be logged into the computer with the same account that I am running the Altiris job as. I’m using the same technique that I have used with hundreds of other application installs. Only this one is having this issue.
Any Ideas on how what might be causing this?
