Has anyone been able to deploy the Slack app for windows? We are trying to deploy it via software distribution and scripts via K1000 both the exe and msi installs seem to fail?

  • Hello,

    i do not know this application but:
    What happens if you manually log in as a local administrator of the machine and try to issue the command for silent installation on the CMD ?
    Does it work or not?
  • So it seems that it requires a user to log in to get it to install into the user's profile AFTER the machine wide installation

I have not tried this application, but seems to be that we struggle on installing certain applications.  I find it valuable to log to a file.  Try this......

Create the directory first or us an existing log directory.  

msiexec.exe /i slack.msi /qn /l*v c:\temp\slack.log 

Then take a look at the log file and I am sure it will point you in the right direction.
