Hi, I am trying to deploy application via sccm. The app build is done using PS toolkit. The issue that I am facing is the application that I deployed via sccm failed to create desktop shortcut. If I run the application manually it does create desktop shortcut icon.
Command that I user is as below in PS toolkit.

Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path "$dirFiles\NielsenAnswers.msi" -Parameters "/quiet"

Please Help.

I'll bet that shortcut *is* created but in the System user's profile.

If so, as a first step, pass 'ALLUSERS=1' on the command line. If that fails, create a transform and use it to change the shortcut's installation folder location.

Also, always, always, ALWAYS use a log when deploying anything. Otherwise, how are you going to diagnose any issues?

  • Thank you for your suggestion. Can you also suggest me creating transform or how to create .mst file for transform. I am considering using Orca to create mst. I am new to PS and tools. Appreciate your help!
