Software Deployment Question

UltraEdit Enterprise x64 : This msi is bad

09/12/2016 1281 views

I use msi to deploy UltraEdit and it works fine with the x86 version but with the x64 it fails.
If I do it in an interactive session, it works fine.
But I have to deploy 100 PC and can't open a session on each !
So I deploy with a schedule task running on startup.
And the installation starts and then hangs.

My schedule task is like that :
Run with highest privileges
Program : msiexec.exe
Arguments : -i C:\Configuration\Softs\ue_french_enterprise_64.msi  ALLUSERS=2 /qn /l*v C:\Outils\Exploit\Log\UEx64.log (create C:\Outils\Exploit\Log or chose an existing folder)
Use the followinguser account : Administrator (local account)
Choose : Run whether user is logged on or not

And file log (begin and end) is :
=== Verbose logging started: 05/09/2016  09:34:23  Build type: SHIP UNICODE 5.00.7601.00  Calling process: C:\windows\system32\msiexec.exe ===

I can send msi if wanted.

Could you help me to tell IDM Software where their msi is ... wrong.

sounds as if something is being executed (or run) as a CA in the immediate sequence, but is not run in the deferred...
 This is usually the reason behind such things... do you have the "full" installation log?

I Create the two logs :
    One created when using interactive session (it works fine) :
        839 Kb : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mBhzpM6SLvQXVVMENRazdzdUk
    The second when using a schedule task (it hangs) :
        139 Kb : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mBhzpM6SLvSUprVWRvUjlVWFE

Thank you for your help.

  • Just as a thought, have you contacted ultraedit support. I know that they provided "extra" msi's for corporate environments where the installation and registration is very different then the normal single licenses... I'll have a look at the logs when I get the time tonight.
    • Yes of course I did.
      But their support are not very ...
      I hope that with real informations they can change their msi !
      • And I use the msi developed for enterprise.
        Here is the folder with the msi : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8mBhzpM6SLvT0lMSVF6U1NfVXM
