upload the zip file to a MI distribution and call the msi with a /qn switch.  The MI will unzip the zip automatically.

  • it is not working
    • You must have done it wrong. Why not just extract the MSI from the ZIP file and use the MSI for installation. Jeez, this is so simple to cause such problems.
      • This is a customer requirement.That is why i was asking it
Make sure the msi file is at the root of the zip file and not in a folder.
