Anyone know what the correct MSIEXEC.EXE MSI install syntax for a Post Installation task is on the k2100?

 We're installing Win10 21H2. We're trying to post install the Zscayler vpn and can't get it to quietly install no matter what we try. If we just put "zscaler.msi" in the command line it installs fine but with all the prompts of a manual install. If we put "msiexec.exe /i zscaler.msi /qn" in the command line it errors out saying it can't find it to run and to check the spelling. Thanks

Is this an application type of post install task?

Make you don't have a typo, or an extra space somewhere.

This should work:

msiexec /i TheFile.msi /qn

Got it going. The MSI would run fine as a "Script" without parameters but wouldn't run as a "Script" when we added them. We had to switch to an "Application" type task and then it would run fine with the parameters. Thanks for the reply.
