I copied the contents of the Dell Webcam Central installation disk, and then created a .zip file from it. I set up a postinstallation task that is the application kind, and I uploaded the WebcamCentral.zip file as the application file. I set the command as "setup.exe. -s" which works from the cmd line at an attended system.

When I include this task in my postinstallation list, it doesn't actually seem to get installed. Its not listed in installed programs.

This is windows 7 32 bit with a scripted installation.

Does the postinstallation tasks leave a log behind I could check out?

I changed the command to setup.exe expecting the installer to show up, but that didn't happen.

Well I think I figured this one out. Maybe.

It seems that the contents of WebcamCentral.zip is a folder called WebcamCentral. Within THAT folder is the actual installation files, including setup.exe.

I am guessing that the postinstallation task executes setup.exe within the decompressed folder, to no effect. I suppose I should zip it up correctly 0_o
