Extract the QuickTimeInstaller.exe to get the MSI installers that it uses, then you can make a batch file to install those. I believe this is how Patch Manager is deploying it (I know it is for iTunes).
I don't specifically deploy through LANDesk because we have it on our base image, but here is the script I use in when deploying via MDT:
cd /d "%~dp0"
rem Install Apple Application Support
msiexec /i "%cd%\AppleApplicationSupport.msi" /quiet /norestart
rem Install QuickTime
"%cd%\QuickTimeInstaller.exe" /quiet DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0
rem Install iTunes
"%cd%\iTunesSetup.exe" /quiet DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=0
rem Delete Uninstall QuickTime shortcut
if exist "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\QuickTime\Uninstall QuickTime.lnk" del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\Programs\QuickTime\Uninstall QuickTime.lnk"
I took the Quicktime "patch" from my ldlogon\patch folder off of the core, copied it to our package share and then created a new .exe package in LANDesk.
I call the exe just as it is and in the install options section I add:
That's it. Has worked for all of the 7.x versions for me
create a batch file distribution
Run QuickTimeInstaller.exe /extract
it will create 3 msi
then create a .bat file like this in notepad
msiexec /i "\\servername\share\Quicktime\QuickTime.msi" /passive DESKTOP_SHORTCUTS=NO
msiexec /i "\\servername\share\Quicktime\AppleSoftwareUpdate.msi" /passive
msiexec /i "\\servername\share\Quicktime\AppleApplicationSupport.msi" /passive
save the files and .bat to you software distrubtion server
add the three msi files as additional files to your distribution package.
Not really necessary to create a batch.
Create 3 MSI packages. With switch that working fine.
So In your task, In package section :
Priliminary : select Quicktime
Principal : select AppleSoftwareUpdate
Finaly : select AppleApplicationSupport
Deploy and Enjoy !
