Problems installing a MSI file that needs a mst config file

02/03/2015 2935 views
I am trying to install Smart Notebook using the K1000. I have the MSI file and the mst file that has all the configuration settings. How can I tell Kace to install it and use that file?
I am able to install the software from the command prompt using the following command:
msiexec /i "C:\ProgramData\Dell\Kace\Downloads\8358\SMARTEducationSoftware.msi" TRANSFORMS="Smartconfig_02_03_15.mst" /qn

I am new to kace and I am not sure how I can make it install the way it needs to be done.

Use the %~DP0 variable instead of an explicit path and ensure you use it for both the MSI and MST.

Also, unless your psychic skills are finely honed, use the '/L*V' argument to add a verbose log to your command line installations.

You may also find that putting unnecessary double quotes around a filename or path that does not have any spaces in it can also cause problems.
