Scripting Question

Deploying a simple setup.exe with an associated xml file

06/05/2017 2114 views
Hi All,

I haven't used the Kace that much so I'm thinking I'm doing something obviously wrong here but I'm unsure. We deploy software beautifully when there is a single setup.exe or msi file, but I have a deployment that needs both a setup.exe file AND an xml file in the same folder when the setup.exe is run.

To do this, I zipped both files and used the following in the script pane:  unzip -o "halogen2.zip" && setup.exe /s /v"/qn”

The result is that i see halogen2.zip and the unzipped files in  C:\ProgramData\dell\KACE\downloads\14948 but nothing is installed.

I have opened a command prompt from this folder and ran just "setup.exe /s /v"/qn”" and the installation goes through without a problem.

Am i doing something wrong?

You don't need the "unzip" in the command line.

Kace will unzip a zipped file by default when

you have multiple files that are dependencies

for an install.

Just zip.....upload....and run the exe file with parameters.
