How to install multiple patches with one command line

Application(MapInfo 12.5.2.exe) extracted 4 patches along with MSI.

I have tried to install multiple patches along with MSI by using below commands but it didn't work

1. msiexec /I <path of MSI> /patch " <path of patch1>; <path of patch2>; <path of patch3>; <path of patch4>" /qb!

2. msiexec /I <path of MSI> PATCH="<path of patch1>; <path of patch2>; <path of patch3>; <path of patch4>"  /qb!

3. msiexec /I <path of MSI>  /update "<path of patch1>; <path of patch2>; <path of patch3>; <path of patch4>"  /qb!

Please give me suggestion on this

  • So what happened when command line install was executed from an elevated command prompt, targeting the directory that hosts the MSI & patch files using the /qb switch? Installing each one at a time.... - Maidens 3 years ago

Actually, msiexec /i A:\Example.msi PATCH=msipatch.msp;msipatch2.msp /qb should work. You can try the following:

msiexec /i A:\Example.msi /qb
msiexec /p msipatch.msp;msipatch2.msp /n {00000001-0002-0000-0000-624474736554} /qb
Where "/n {ProductCode}" specifies a particular instance of the product.

If the last command does not work as expected, try to add REINSTALLMODE="ecmus" REINSTALL="ALL"

I almost never deploy patches direct to workstations this way. 

I recommend creating an AIP of the product, patching that, then deploying the patched package. Much easier.
