When using KACE scripts to push an install package, the push will not work with a "/s" (silent install) added to the Install Args?

I have a need to push a software install package using KACE.  It is an old software install from 2010, Version 20.1.  It is a "Global Mapper Setup.exe" file.  I use a script because after I need to push a copy of a license file to a specific location on that local machine.  When I run the script, it first pushes my install package.  The files do make it to the local PC.  It will not run the install package with the Install Args section having the "/s" for silent install.  It will run the install package without the "/s" in the Args section.  Of course, it runs visible, and the user has to complete the installation. I think it may be the UAC blocking it.  Anyone have a solution for this problem?

To install the silently via the command line for all users on the machine, use the following syntax:

32-bit: msiexec /i ue_english.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qn
64-bit: msiexec /i ue_english_64.msi ALLUSERS=1 /qn

You can silently register/activate UltraEdit from the command line.  This is possible after UltraEdit has been successfully installed on the system.  The command line syntax for this is as follows:

For 32 bit
  uedit32.exe /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>"
For 64 bit
  uedit64.exe /lic,e="<LicenseID>|<Password>"

...where "<LicenseID>" is your unique license ID and "<Password>" is your unique password. Example:

  uedit32.exe /lic,e="1234567|AzBxcYD"

I did.  It is an old version of the program and I am having to do a dance with their support team.  Hopefully I get an answer soon.   I will keep this updated.

contact the vendor for info how to silent install.
Not all software is compiled using the /s (or /S or /silent) option.

According to the vendor MSI packages are avaiable which are the best option.

In addition: Since the agent runs as SYSTEM the UAC should not be a problem.
