Can I run a batch file in managed install quietly?
11/07/2016 3183 views
I've uploaded a zip file which includes 2 msi files and one bat file. I'm using Managed installed and calling the bat file as you can see in the screenshot. This works great except the command prompt stays open while it's installing the msi quietly. Is there a way to hide the Command prompt or run in it silently? I don't want users to close this while it's installing because this is an encryption program and both msi files have to install in order.

It should be silent but there are a couple of problems with your configuration.
It looks like you have a space in the batch file name, is it "call 2.bat" or call2.bat? I would remove the space.
You need to check the box for "Don't Prepend msiexec.exe", otherwise the appliance will actually try running msiexec.exe call2.bat, which won't work.
