Why am I getting a "Windows Installer" window when deploying MSI files?
I'm an intern at the IT department of my local city government with limited prior experience with KACE, and I’ve been tasked with working on figuring out how to deploy Java over KACE to the users, and I’ve been working on deploying it to a test computer. I’ve almost figured out how deploy the software via a MSI, but I’m running into a problem where when the software tries to install, rather than installing, the software pops up a message on the computer’s screen labeled “Windows Installer”, with a list of all the switches you can set with the msiexec command, and an okay button. Clicking OK simply closes the window, and does not cause the application to install.
I’m using this MSIExec command: ‘msiexec.exe /i /a "jre1.7.0_45-c.msi" ‘ with the software set to install on login, before loading the desktop.
What am I doing wrong, and what changes do I need to make?
I’m currently only working two days a week, so I won’t be able to get any log files for you until Tuesday at the soonest.
Thank you very much for your time and patience.
