Found a solution, after much searching, here is the solution. I take no credit for the answer, so here is the link to the original post.

Download WLSetup-all, and use the following switches:

/AppSelect:[ProductID] or ![ProductID]
/log:log_location
/NOToolbarCEIP (to not opt into Toolbar CEIP)
/NOhomepage (to not set home page defaults)
/Nolaunch (blocks all applications from running automatically after your installation is complete)
/NOMU (to opt the computer into Microsoft Update)
/nosearch (to not set search defaults)
/q (for a silent/unattended install)

Here is my command that I use to install:

WLSetup-all.exe /q /NOToolbarCEIP /NOhomepage /Nolaunch /nosearch  /AppSelect:Photo,Mail,Messenger

Cheers!

Is there any way to do a silent install without a reboot?  It's the one managed installation in KACE that is forcing a reboot.

Just google around the web with this version number, you should find it. Some links are forwarding you to 15.xxx build version, and that would be 2011 sucker.

We run windows 7 x64

Also I have tried to use the msi-files collected from Cache-folder during wlsetup-web.exe
but I get a DLL-error message.
So thinking of going with the complete package instead using the switches described above, but can't
get a hold of the file.. :/

I hope you know that Live Essentials isnt Windows XP compatible. I was able to distribute a working version using the Windows XP release. I ran the Windows Live Messenger installation and extracted the MSI file than I deployed it with GPO. You need 2 package, Windows Live Messenger (of course) and the Windows Live Communication Platform.

Good luck

What I did was download version 14 to my work machine and follow the instructions here http://itninja.com/link/windows-live-essentials-(wave-3)-qfe-2-standalone-messenger-and-other-apps-installers-download-«--my-digital-life so that I could create a deploy package for the rest of the machines using version 14.

So you're using the OEM version 8 from here?

http://g.live.com/1rewlive/en/WLSetup.exe

I was going to http://download.live.com/Messenger to download version 14.  My old version 8.1.178.0 is not allowed to sign in anymore; that oem ver 8.5.1302.1018 is allowed to sign in.  A space before config.txt seems to be mandatory.  The /configfile option is ignored with version 14, but the /silent option works.  I guess I'll hold off on jumping 6 versions with all its extra baggage for now.  :)

I used P=A26D7C8B-875D-48E2-BED1-7168268D022A*0&s=0&h=0&c=0&m=EN-US&t=1 like you inside my config file

"WLSetup.exe" /silent /configfile: "\\path\to\config\file\config.txt"

FYI the wlsetup.exe that you download from that link contains Windows Live Messenger 8 with the newest version of Windows Live Messenger being 14.0.8089.726

Using this method, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943595/en-us what does config.txt look like for installing Messenger 2009 only?  This seems to still install everything:


p=A26D7C8B-875D-48E2-BED1-7168268D022A*0&s=0&h=0&c=0&m=EN-US&t=0


wlsetup-all.exe /silent /configfile:"config.txt"

Finally found a way to make it work. I followed artini advice on the WLM 8 appdeploy page.


2) You need to add a populated AdvtExecuteSequence table to the package. The easiest method is to export the AdvtExecuteSequence table from the sequence.msi sample package included in the Windows Installer SDK. Then use the import table functionality to import the advtExecuteSequence table into the messenger package.


CostInitialize 800
CostFinalize 1000
InstallValidate 1400
InstallInitialize 1500
CreateShortcuts 4500
RegisterClassInfo 4600
RegisterExtensionInfo 4700
RegisterProgIdInfo 4800
RegisterMIMEInfo 4900
PublishComponents 6200
MsiPublishAssemblies 6250
PublishFeatures 6300
PublishProduct 6400
InstallFinalize 6600

Once this package is fixed up, you should be able to add it for deployment (note that you have to fix the package before you configure it for deployment).

Then open Property table and Modify IAGREE to "Yes" then add the following rows:

ADDBHO = "No-ADDBHO"
ADDLINKS = "No-AddLinks"
SETHOMEPAGE = "No-SetMyHomePage"


I didn't have to modify the MsgrFeat located in the Feature table.

Last thing, yes I know I misplaced the topic. Maybe some admin can move it to the proper location?

Thanks

GP screws you over like that every now and again. What you'll probably also find is that when you run the Deployment Wizard, the report will show the GPO as 'Empty'.

Delete the GPO - not just the link, the entire GPO - and recreate it.

BTW, AppDeploy has a separate GP forum.

Alright did some test yesterday. Using procmon i was able to see that the machine reads the GPO, but still cannot do anything to even try install the application. Before Ctrl-Alt-Del its not even displaying the application names. It looks to me that it doesnt even try to install.

When I checked the scripts file located in the SYSVOL under Policies/GUID/ the .AAS script file has 0 bytes.

Any other clue? Why it fails to create the script file? Incorrect MSI file format, missing table, value?

Yeah, installation now work with the MSI while loggued in. I found out that it requires .net framework 3.5 to work... Damn MS not specifying this anywhere!

Anyway, the installation still not working. It's not even trying in the boot sequence before the Ctrl-Alt-Del. I see the "Installing the software" thing, but for like 0.1 second...

I'll check what I can find with ProcMon.

Thanks.

when launching application, it fails

My previous post looked like a noob post. :D

Installer completed successfully when logged in, but when launching application, it fails. I don't have the exact error message (Working in french) but it says that the application could not be launched because the settings were not set propoerly. I could paste my log file, but I highly doubt it will provide something useful.

What really surprise me, is the so little information I can find about WLM 2009. I guess everyone will wake up when MS pushes its mandatory update in 2 weeks.

Bumping an old thread. WLM has fallen in the priority list but with the mandatory upgrade that will come soon, I have to deploy the new version soon.

I grabbed the MSI i got from the downloaded file from the generic Windows Live thing installer.

Verbose logging give me

There are a couple other MSI associated with WLM (Live Sign In Assistant and Live Essentials). Those 2 are working when deployed in GPO but the main application (Live Messenger) isnt...

When manually installing with the msi while logged, it's still not working.

The description of your problem is too vague. Does it deploy or not? What does a verbose log tell you?

BTW, you're aware that there's a specific GPO forum here http://www.appdeploy.com/messageboards/tt.asp?forumid=10
