Shall we just guess what happened? "Does not install" doesn't tell us anything, does it?

You must add the name of a log file if you use the '/l' argument. Did you test this on a sacrificial PC/VM?

Also, your post has *nothing* to do with virtualisation so please remove that tag and add one of more relevance.

Why are you keeping the msi and mst in C:\Program Files(x86)..

That too, There is no space between "Files" and "(x86)"
I hope you have created this folder structure manually or may be typo in command line.

You have two double quote here TRANSFORMS=""C:\

After /l*v there is no path and name specified for log file

your cmd should be:
msiexec /I "name of the.MSI" TRANSFORMS="The name of the MST with customisations in it.mst" /qn

helping you a bit more....

msiexec /i "googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi" TRANSFORMS="googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.mst" /QN

I see you have the logging switched on, I think its better to tell it where to write the log file and as mentioned, give it a name. Technically you don't need the /qn switch on this installer as there are no dialogues, but, best practise blah blah.

so try this...

msiexec /i "googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi" TRANSFORMS="googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.mst" /QN /L*v "%temp%\Chrome.log"

Unless you actually copied your MSI and MST to "C:\Program Files(x86)\google" (which would be pretty weird) your paths wont work.

As many people have written on more than one occasion on a small blog called itninja, use %~dp0 to make it all relative.

try copying this into a file and save it as Install.cmd

msiexec /i "%~dp0googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi" TRANSFORMS="%~dp0googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.mst" /QN /L*v "%temp%\Chrome.log"

That should sort you out. Slightly curious too about why you call the MST something to do with x64. You shouldn't need to do much with the MSI.

Good luck

  • Great work.. hope he understand
Did you download the 64bit version rather than 32bit? When you say you 'transformed' the msi, what did you change / add / remove?

  • Hi I download the 64bit and add the master_preference
Note that none of the examples use two double quotes after TRANSFORMS=
Basic errors like this will certainly prevent installation.
Also, the path to the logfile MUST exist, so if you change it, make sure the destination folder exists otherwise it will fail.

I am trusting that you have googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi in "C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\google\" folder and also the mst if so try this ..

C:\Windows\System32\msiexec /i "C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\google\googlechromestandaloneenterprise.msi"TRANSFORMS=""C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\google\googlechromestandaloneenterprise64.mst" /l*v "c:\temp\googlechromestandaloneenterprise64 Install.log" /qb+
