At 1st sorry, if I have put this question in wrong forum.
My problem: I have packaged msi applications, with sms deployment. No. of times I have created vbscript, to install those msi. Now we have a new project, and we do not handle deployment of it. Client uses SCCM. Frankly speaking I do not know issues/problems in SCCM.
When we continued delivering Installation vbscripts, onsite guy is saying that, " SCCM does not like executing VB scripts" Is it true? Has anybody experienced this before? I really do not like bat file scripting. If this is true, then I will have to batfile scripting :(

What utter piffle. Ignore him. What he probably means "I don't know VBS and it scares me."

Go to the download section and grab MsiStub, all done!

If you have packaged MSI applications, why are you using vbscript for the deployment command line?

SMS and SCCM can handle msiexec command lines - you can even give it the MSI file and it'll add the package and create the command line for you.

Does your script do anything special or different outside of the MSI?

Surely this impacts on reporting too - if the script issues the msiexec command line, which fails to install, but the script (assuming no error trapping) completed successfully then SMS will report on the outcome of the script, not the installation.

Please check your copy of the Systems Management Server 2003 Administator's Companion for further information.

I don't know if you've worked out how these messageboard thingies work yet.... but your post has nothing to do with the original topic of this thread.

In a case such as this, where your post has no relevance, the correct manner to go about posing a question is to start a new thread, in the correct sub-forum - your question, as far as I can tell, has nothing to do with 'Scripting', or more specifically a 'Doubt for vbscript'.

After you've deleted your post and created a new thread, in the correct forum, you may want to provide more information than you have provided so as to solicit a response that is suitable to your situation:


One of my application on windows 7 releted to Addin, trying to open outlook with addin entry, getting Active X Bolcking bar.
this bar not showing in XP.
How can i supress dat ??????

Thx in adv

You post doesn't really cover it...

Last thing - whilst I'm on a roll - This is a board that is used by members world-wide, some of whom do not have English as a first language, therefore using 'text speak' in a posting makes it difficult for them to read.

Let me go W A Y out on a limb and suggest the button at the top of the thread list table, which is marked 'New Post'?

And do that in the 'Package Development' forum. And do that AFTER you have Googled about Vista/Windows 7 security and UAC.
