I have been tasked with creating a deployment package for the Judicial Dialog software (jdsetup.msi). The software vendor doesn't have a .msi switch to automatically install the program. I attempted to create a package using msiexec /a "pgcsms\c$\package\filename\jdsetup.msi" which initiates from the run line however, attaching this command line in the deployment package doesn't. Any suggestions?

Maybe Ive misunderstood, but I suspect you misunderstand MSI. You have an MSI, and you want to deploy the MSI, using what ?

The '/a' switch is used to create an Administrative Installation Point, which would then be hosted on a network share. You would then deploy from the AIP using the '/i' switch.

Note also that AppDeploy has a specific SCCM/SMS forum. A moderator may move this thread there.
