Deployment Tips (1)

Most Common Setup Type
Not Determined
Average Package Difficulty Rating
Rated 3 / 5 (Average) based on 1 ratings
Most Commonly Reported Deployment Method
Vendor Provided Command Line (switch driven)
Solution 1: Native EXE
This uses VMware's original DL'd EXE but there is a catch:
It installs the VIX requisite AFTER this EXE is log exited.
That could cause issues depending what you are doing after this line is executed (e.g. install another MSI, forced reboot...).

"%~DP0VMware-PowerCLI-5.0.0-435426.exe" /q /s /w /V"/qn /l*v \"%TEMP%\Install\VMware_Power_CLI_V500.LOG\" TRANSFORMS=\"%~DP0VMware_Power_CLI_V500.mst\" "

Notice the escaped double quotes (\") for the /V parameter
It's a InstallShield Setup.exe parameter.

To figure out the %~DP0 part, see

The TRANSFORMS property is just there for demonstration purposes. This will work, too.:
"%~DP0VMware-PowerCLI-5.0.0-435426.exe" /q /s /w /V"/qn /l*v \"%TEMP%\Install\VMware_Power_CLI_V500.LOG\" "

Solution 2: Base MSI

The MSIs are obtained via the %TEMP% folder trick. (see my notes in the VMware vSphere client 5.0)
Install VIX first and the VMware vSphere PowerCLI.msi will *NOT* spawn a stealth MSI install for VIX afterwards.

msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0VMware VIX.msi" /l*v "%TEMP%\Install\%PKGNAME%_VIX_v1.10.LOG" /qb!-

msiexec.exe /i "%~dp0VMware vSphere PowerCLI.msi" TRANSFORMS="%~dp0VMware_Power_CLI_V500.MST" /l*v "%TEMP%\Install\VMware_Power_CLI_V500.LOG" /qb!-
