QuickBooks 2021 managed install

Hello all,

i have managed to modify my installer to msi with ORCA and create a transform file.  I then created a bat file and zipped the whole folder and uploaded it to KACE for a managed install. The problem is that when i run the bat file on the computer locally it runs and installs without issues but when through KACE nothing happens..

this is my command inside the bat file:

.\QuickBooks.msi TRANSFORMS="Quickbook_may_2021.mst" /qb && .\QuickBooks.msi TRANSFORMS="Quickbook_may_2021.mst" /q

I also tried the below command:

.\QuickBooks.msi TRANSFORMS="Quickbook_may_2021.mst" /q 

Both work fine locally but not through KACE..Any suggestions?

MSI files can be tricky, as Kace does not run them as a MI or script without calling msiexec to do so. For an MI specifically, I have them working by zipping up as you have done and then on the "Full Command Line" use:
msiexec /qn /i "XXXXfile.msi" TRANSFORMS=XXXFile.mst
(of course replacing the XXXFile with the name of your msi and tranform)

Hope that helps!
