what are the correct steps to install lotus notes 8.5.x over K1000 Appliance?
In the inventory there i have created a software package likes lotus notes. I have uploaded the lotus_notes.zip with all installer files and the setup.exe.

After i created a managed installation with manually config and following command:

setup.exe /s /v"SELECTINSTALLFEATURES= Editors,SametimeUI SELECT_EDITORS=1 /qb+"

But always i get the popup with msi exec options.

Have you tried running this (without the KBox involved) from a prompt in Windows, using the exact same command? If so, what was the result? r2

Is the package being unzipped properly? You can check the C:\ProgramData\Dell\KACE\Downloads\ (on Win7) or C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Dell\KACE\Downloads (on WinXP) folder to see the .ZIP and extracted contents. Btw, our recommended utility is 7zip, using standard compression, and zipping the contents, NOT the root folder they're in. r2

Looks like right syntax.
Try to put it in a bat-file and execute the bat-file from kace, that should do the thing.

What I've done is download the InstallShield Tuner provided from IBM/Lotus to set thoes options and make a MST file, that is working very well to be honest.

Other customization tools are named here:

And then I made a bat file like this:

@echo off
echo Installing Lotus Notes 8.5.2...
rem Stopping Trend Micro Real time scanner
cscript StopTMservice.vbs //NOLOGO
start C:\ch-group\bat\StopNotesCL.exe /q
echo Stopping Lotus Notes Services...
taskkill /IM Connect.exe /F
taskkill /IM nslsvice.exe /F

msiexec /i "%~dp0Lotus Notes 8.5.2.msi" TRANSFORMS="%~dp0Desktop.mst" /qb

echo Installing Lotus Notes 8.5.2 Fix Pack 3...
.\FP3\Setup.exe /S /V/qb-!
rem Starting Trend Micro Real time scanner
cscript StartTMservice.vbs //NOLOGO

(note I've made a stop real time scan at the start of the script and a start again at the end, because that will speed up the installation ALOT!)
