How to Automate the Installation of .msi you want via MDT 2010 Update 1
November 17, 2011 § Leave a Comment
In MDT 2010 Update 1 you can continue to install / deploy .msi applications as defined in the Deployment Share.
During the MDT Applications wizard one of the parameters to configure is the command line. This time we want to install .msi application packages:
1.Identify the true name / complete name of the .msi. For example:
the complete name of this application is essbe_nt64_enu.msi
2. You need to use the msiexec /i as prefix to the name of the .msi application package name.
msiexec /i essbe_nt64_enu.msi /passive
Note: The /passive is a non-user interaction switch for the ESET ESS application used in this example. To find out our applications switches you may drag them to to a cmd and just add the /? .
