My MSI file is within a folder, within a folder and therfore I zip it up for upload into KACE. There is also other files in these folders which the MSI requires and so when creating a deployment in KACE, I need to tell it where the msi file is.

The instructions are not clear. For example if I was doing it manually I would go (this is an example): [msiexec /i "C:\installs\subfolder1\msi_file\program name.msi" /qn /l logfile.log]. But In KACE which part of that do I need to enter into the command line field? Because I've uploaded the zip file surely it doesn't need to refer to C:?

Hopefully I've given enough info. Even if someone replies and says "using the above example, you would enter it into KACE command like this this: XXX" that would be awesome.

Create a CMD file with:


msiexec /i "installs\subfolder1\msi_file\program name.msi" /qn /l logfile.log


Then enter the name of that CMD file in your command line. Make sure to include the file in your ZIP.

  • Sounds good. Just waiting on some software to arrive and then I'll be able to give this a go. Thanks for the tip.
