using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager - Part 8. Deploying Applications

Recommended Posts

Hi, just wondered if someone could help me on this subject.


I've created a distribution using the enterprise MSI for foxit reader. I've tested the install and uninstall commands with an elevated command prompt on my test machine and both install with silent installs no problem.



msiexec /i "FoxitReader734_enu_Setup.msi" /qn



msiexec /x {CC9C20CB-394A-40E9-AC56-3542D5F865AC} /q


Ive created a system install, and set the installation visibility to hidden, and the user can see it in the software centre, but when they install it, they get the full install wizard? it allows them to go though the install and finish it, but im trying to hide this part, which works ok from my command line install?


Any suggestions on why this behaviour is occurring?


Also, once they've run though the install, the installation status is showing as failed, even though its completed?

sounds like the /qn isn't the right switch If its displaying. You don't have to set the deployment to hidden if you already have a silent switch running and are using a "n" for no display for instance. If you only use a /q or /s or /silent /quiet whatever that app developer put in place it generally will then either not show any progress bar status or it will just show a progress bar status.


As far as your command I don't see anything wrong with it but if it is prompting you then it leads me to believe that the /qn is not valid.
