Kofax Power PDF Installer Script

Hello IT Ninjas!

I am trying to create a managed installation for Kofax Power PDF. I am able to get the syntax to run in command prompt.

How do I write up this script in managed  installation to point to the C:\ProgramData\Quest\downloads folder. The 7813 will not be the same for each computer I deploy to.

Thanks in advance!

Command Prompt Syntax:

msiexec.exe /i "C:\Users\tnn1\Desktop\Package2\System64\Kofax Power PDF Advanced.msi" INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\Power PDF 31\" TRANSFORMS="C:\Users\tnn1\Desktop\Package2\System64\1033.mst;C:\Users\tnn1\Desktop\Package2\System64\admin_customSettings.mst" /qn

Kace Managed Installation:

msiexec /i "C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\7813\Kofax Power PDF 3.1 Upgrade\System64\Kofax Power PDF Advanced.msi" INSTALLDIR="C:\Program Files (x86)\Kofax\Power PDF 31\" TRANSFORMS="C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\7813\Kofax Power PDF 3.1 Upgrade\System64\1033.mst;C:\ProgramData\Quest\KACE\downloads\7813\Kofax Power PDF 3.1 Upgrade\System64\admin_customSettings.mst" /qb

I have included a screen shot of where the files would be located once I try to deploy via Managed Installation.

I ended up dropping the payload via File Synchronization and had a bat file point to the path to do the installation.
