All User install fails

12/04/2006 8569 views
I have a Wise v7 created msi script, and am trying to deploy for All Users. It does install for all users as a normal admin. However, when installed via SMS2003, it's doing it as Per User, and the shortcut does not show up and nothing shows up in Add\Remove programs.
My lines I've tried to use to run the install from SMS are (same results):
msiexec /i myapp.msi /qb
msiexec /i myapp.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qb
msiexec /i myapp.msi ALLUSERS="1" /qb
msiexec /i myapp.msi ALLUSERS=2 /qb
msiexec /i myapp.msi ALLUSERS="2" /qb
These line work fine from a command line with my admin account. The install log file always shows the current value for Allusers to be as specified above (that looks good). The SMS package is set up admin priviledges, and allow users to interact. Within the msi, the parameter is set to ALLUSERS=2 (1 had no effect either).
Any ideas? Thx.

Hi ,

If you wise 7 for packaging, try to make changes in the Add/Remove programs whether is it is checked to Do not display in Add/Remove programs , if not you can add a property in properties table as

and for all users profiles , add allusers property as ALLUSERS=1

Set the values as 1
