MSI install with MST

0

Hey PDQ

Im trying to make a deploy packet with a msi file, where i have made a mst file for, when i deploy it with GPO it work, but when i do it with PDQ deploy, it does not work.

The program, is ComArchive, it's a addin for outlook, where it need a internet adresse to work, but when i install it with PDQ it does not put the internet adresse in. and i use the same mst file as i do when i deploy it with GPO.

$(Repository)\setupfile.msi

Parameters:

TRANSFORMS="myfile.mst"

Additional Files:

Include Entire Directory?

or

create Custom Command Line step

or

create New Step > Command

msiexec.exe /i "installer.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart TRANSFORMS="file.mst"

Files: add your msi and mst

or local pc install

New Step > Install

Install File

$(Repository)\file\install.bat

Parameters

/silent /noreboot

Include Entire Directory

install.bat:

@echo off
taskkill /f /im outlook.exe /im lync.exe
msiexec.exe /i "installer.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart TRANSFORMS="file.mst"

I even needed onetime copy files with folder to target pc specific folder in order to work..

Copy step:

Source:

$(Repository)\file\folder

Target Folder:

C:\Program Files (x86)\folder

Command step:

msiexec.exe /i "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\folder\install.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /qn /norestart /log output.log TRANSFORMS="file.mst"

If you can install in target pc locally in commandline or powershell with all your transform and silent parameters then it must work also from pdq, maybe package options "Run As" etc?

Hey thx for the reply.

now i have tryed all af your suggestion, but are not using the mst file, like the gpo do. So if i deploy it with DPQ i have to manually put the link into the ComArchive addin in outlook. I can't see why it does not work.

If you don't already have it, download the Adobe Reader DC installer and look at the steps in that. I believe their use of the .msp would be the same as if you used the .mst if your install.

still not working, mine is:

Install Files:

\server\path\ComArchive for Outlook 2010-13-16 x86 (3.25.29).msi

Parameters:

TRANSFORMS="Link.mst" "the mst file is called link"

Additional Files:

\server\path\Link.mst

It install the program, but it does not copy the link into the program, as when i deploy the program with GPO.
