Need a Script for installing MSI using software distribution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Hi Friends,

    Could any one help me on script.

    My client need to install only excell application using Excel11.msi file with MST.

    Here is the commend line which we executed in standalone system and its successful, and the office whole package is in standalone system E drive.

    Msiexec /i E:\packages\office2003\source\office\excel11.msi transforms=E:\packages\office2003\setup\excel\excel.mst /qn

     

    But we are distribution the office application from central server and its distributed to 200 primary site.

    i need a script which execute/run MSI file with MST from the distribution points of all sites.

    For Example [ CTL is central site, we are distributed the office application to SYS site from the central site and to other primary sites.

    System 1 is connect to SYS site, we distributed the Office application to System, EXCEL application to be installed and like wise other clients.]

     

    The script to be common for all primary sites.

    Thanks in Advance,

    Kannan.

  • There's no real difference when running it from ConfigMgr. Put your source files in a package and create a program in that package. The program will automatically reference those source files from a local DP based upon your DPs and boundaries. Thus your command line (assuming everything is in the package and properly distributed to the DPs) would be:

    msiexec /i excel.msi TRANFORMS=excel.mst /qn

    This is standard behavior for ConfigMgr.

  • In ConfigMgr is ok, but we are using SMS 2003 environment.
