Here is an example of a Offline kScript that copies a single file (lic file) to a specific directory on a MAC.  

Note that for scripting with MACs, using the Offline kscript you do not need to use escape characters; e.g. you don't need to type in /Library/Application\ Support/... rather you can just use /Library/Application Support/....

  • The Verify step might be occurring before the file finishes copying to the local machine. Try having it verify something else.
    • Also, if you leave the Verify step blank it automatically assumes a success in the scripting logic. You don't technically need it...
  • I think I found your error, you don't verify that the zip file exists but rather you verify the extracted file within your zip file exists.
    • I tried Mpaces idea of just removing the verify steps completely and still no go
  • Are you ziping up a folder called MSINET or the files themselves? What is the error message?
    • the zipped folder is called MSINET.ZIP and it contains 1 file called msinet.ocx and I don't get an error message when run the script the Dell Kace says it completed no errors but nothing shows up in the directory I specified.
  • ok so I have tried to get a file into the system32 directory on windows 7 and no dice. So I started to look into it and found this http://www.itninja.com/question/can-t-copy-a-file-to-system32-on-windows-7 and then I found this http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/252d6744-e167-4459-8bef-82d010301bd3/trustedinstaller-group so it may not be possible to get a file into system32 without messing with the trusted installer group.

    Does the file have to go into system32 or can it go somewhere else?
    • Damn. Yeah the file needs to go into the system32 directory we are trying to stream line some in house software upgrades.

Have you tried uploading the file first?  I had a similar issue where I couldn't unzip unless I first uploaded.

Upload $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\MSINET.ZIP
Unzip $(KACE_DEPENDENCY_DIR)\MSINET.ZIP to C:\Windows\System32
