Installing Foxit PhantomPDF Business with K1000. Script works on local machine, but doesn't work when deployed through KACE.
Script is as follows:
msiexec.exe /i "\\fileserver\ITStorage\SOFTWARE\Foxit PDF installer\Foxit Business\FoxitPhantomPDF96_L10N_Setup.msi" /qn /norestart INSTALLLOCATION="C:\Program Files\Foxit Software" ADDLOCAL=ALL DESKTOP_SHORTCUT=1 SETDEFAULTPRINTER=1 VIEW_IN_BROWSER=1 EMBEDDED_PDF_INOFFICE=1 AUTO_UPDATE=2 EDITION=BUSINESS KEYPATH="\\fileserver\ITstorage\Software\Foxit PDF Installer\Foxit Business\fpmkey.txt"
I've tried many different iterations now to no avail. Any insight on this would be appreciated.
I think SMal.tmcc has given you the correct info to do it the way you are trying. You might want to consider using the foxit customization tool to handle the customization rather than trying to use all those switches. The customization tool and XML editor together allow you to create a totally customized package with licensing included and everything. Once you've created your customized installation you can zip all the install files together and upload that to KACE. The beauty of this is you don't have to create special credentials or anything, it can just be run as system and it works fine. I spent a lot of time customizing and deploying foxit/phantom with KACE so I can definitely answer questions for you
My guess is you are running the script as system and it has no access to file server. Try running as a user with rights to the share and ability to install. you should also issue a "net use \\fileserver" in a batch script with the msi line to insure a connection to the server prior to making the msi call
