MSIEXEC errors while using ADR-package

06/24/2009 4166 views
I have created a MSI using the AppDeply Repackager 1.1 application. As mentioned in the instructions i have used a clean XP install.

While double clicking on the produced MSI file the application is installed as expected and this is good, however while using MSIEXE.EXE i experience an error:




Does anyone have the same experience and what is the solution?

Thanks in advance!

Berry,

Please post the command line you're using with msiexec.

If it works by double clicking then your command line must be duff.

Thanks,

[font="courier new"]msiexec -i AppName.msi

The idea is that we deploy those MSI's based on a GPO. But the manual installation with msiexec fails...

Berry,

The error message you get is the same as if you've specified an MSI file that can't be found i.e.the wrong path specified.

Are you running the command line in a batch file? Is it on a UNC path?

Try specifying the absolute path to the MSI file in your command line, and create a log file ' /l*v c:\mylog.log' that will also give you some indication of what the problem is.

Also it's also normal to use ' /i ' rather than ' -i'

Hope this helps,

Hi Berry,
This might also happen if you are trying to run the MSI straight from server location. Try mapping your drive to that location where your MSI is located and I think it will be OK

This worked out fine... we will stick to mapped drives instead of UNC paths.

Thanks for the quick replies!
