I am having trouble installing this on a 64 bit machine running the instlall as the system account.  I am using the command Salesforceforoutlook.exe /exenoui /exelang 1033 /qn /norestart.  The install works fine on the 32 bit machines.

  • Check if Office installed is a 64 bit one. If not it is not going to install. But you can still use 32 bit on a 64 bit machine.
  • Bradsexton, thanks for the command-line parameters "/exenoui /exelang 1033 /qn /norestart". We were looking 2 days for these parameters, which Salesforce haven't documentated anywhere.....

Scripts used to close Outlook and install/uninstall Salesforce for Outlook unattended without desktop icon via Configuration Manager 2012 SP1.

Install:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE Name = 'Outlook.exe'")
For Each objProcess in colProcessList
 objProcess.Terminate()
Next

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.Run "SalesforceForOutlook.msi ALLUSERS=1 INSTALL_SHORTCUT=False REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn /l*v %temp%\SalesforceForOutlook.log",0,True


Uninstall:

strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
 & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
Set colProcessList = objWMIService.ExecQuery _
 ("SELECT * FROM Win32_Process WHERE Name = 'Outlook.exe'")
For Each objProcess in colProcessList
 objProcess.Terminate()
Next

Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

objShell.Run "MsiExec.exe /X{D97A761B-27EA-4665-94F2-4EFCA4427728} REBOOT=ReallySuppress /qn /l*v %temp%\SalesforceForOutlook.log",0,True

This is what I did.

Extracted the exe just to separate it from 64 bit and 32 bit instllations. And then install the 32 bit on a 64 bit machine. Since the version of office is 32 bit. And called the 32 bit on both of them.  you can also obtain office visual studio office runtime whne extracting that.
Easy beasy.

Command Line
Do not make any modifications to the MSI as this is a user level install not a machine level install. use the regular commandline to deploy the software. But run it when the user is logged in. Vendor does not want us to change the install directory location.
