Attempting to create a deployment package for the following program Judicial Dialog (jdsetup.msi) for deployment. I attempted to create a package using (msiexec /i "pgcsms\c$\package\filename\jdsetup.msi") in the programs Command Line. Any suggestions on switches will initiate the installation. I've run this command line in the RUN line which appears to begin the installation process...

msiexec /i "pgcsms\c$\package\filename\jdsetup.msi"Did you mean:
msiexec /i \\pgcsms\c$\package\filename\jdsetup.msi

The double backslash is required but the quotes are not, as there are no spaces in the command line. Also, you'll probably want to add a log:
msiexec /i \\pgcsms\c$\package\filename\jdsetup.msi /l*v %temp%\jdsetup.log

If you're using SCCM/SMS then you can use 'New Package from Definition' and give it the MSI file.

It will create the necessary programs within your package.

You may also want some switches to run silently on install, have a look on a machine with the Windows Installer on it and run 'msiexec /?'
