Receiving a error 740 when it tries to complete the Post Install task.

Getting to this point.

2016 Office Pro Plus software is downloaded.
Shift + right clicked in the white of the folder.  Clicked on Open Command Window here.
Command prompt typed setup.exe /admin
Went through and changed the configuration.
Saved .MSP file back into the folder where the setup.exe was located.
Ctrl+A and Compressed all the files in the folder into a .zip file.

Created a Application Post Install Task.
Named it.
Runtime Environment = Windows
Uploaded .zip file
And then in the parameters typed - setup.exe /adminfile MICDS2017.MSP
I also tried the parameters - setup.exe /configure c:\Kace\Applications\246\ProPlus.WW\config.xml

So far I have not had good results with either of these parameters.  

Has anyone else had any luck with office 2016 and installing it as a post install task from the K2000.

  • What happens when the post-install task runs?
  • It receives error 740 on the task and asks if you you want to to skip the task.

I also do the same and put in the update folder.

For us we drop the .MSP into the updates folder and run the installer normally.  I don't know if that is best practice but it works for us.  Just copy your .msp into the updates folder and run setup.exe with no switch. Hope it works out for you.
