ya flamin galah, you're missing bits!


msiexec /i JunkReportingAdd-in.x64-en.msi /qn

/qn = no gui, it you omit the /qn its just like double clicking the msi.

msiexec /? for more information about the switches. Not sure how KACE handles deployment, but you might need to full path the JunkReportingAdd-in.x64-en.msi, idk, some kace persion will be able to tell you, im more sccm.

Office add-ins are installed to the user's profile. You think the install hasn't worked because it will have been installed by the local System account.

You'll need to create a package that self-heals. That topic has been done to death here and elsewhere. You'll also need to use a script to do the registry stuff if your Office version is earlier than 2010 (v14), to avoid overwriting entries for existing add-ins.
