    Proper Command Line for Deploying Project 03????


      Can someone please provide me with the proper command line for the MSI Project 2003 package (which is just prjstde.msi) for silent deployment w/key?

      I can get it working just fine with a local install using MSI exec, however I am having some difficulty in figuring out the syntac used by Landesk..clearly it is calling MSI exec but seems to be getting things out of order?


      For isntance, the command line I am opting for is:

      /i /passive PIDKEY="XYZZY" /norestart


      However it seems no matter what I do with either the MSI or Setup.exe using methods that I know otherwise WORK, Landesk keeps returning a failure on install for targeted workstations.


      For instance here is the excerpt from the log file:


      Wed, 24 Nov 2010 14:57:52 Execute Msiexec.exe with command Line: "Msiexec.exe"  /passive PIDKEY="XYZZY" /norestart /i "C:\Program Files\LANDesk\LDClient\sdmcache\apps\Project03Std\PRJSTDE.MSI" REBOOT=ReallySuppress
      Wed, 24 Nov 2010 14:57:55 MSI result 8DB50643
      Wed, 24 Nov 2010 14:57:55 processing of package is complete, result -1917516221 (0x8db50643 - code 1603)


      So it looks like that should be working given that its calling everything, but clearly it isn't.


      I have tried using the office customizer for office 2003 but the transforms file does not seem to work either.


      Clearly I am missing something or just doing it wrong, so if someone could please correct my syntax it would be much appreciated.

          I would have another go with the OCT, it is a cleaner way of doing it. Are you getting any errors when using the MST locally?

            Everything works locally.  When i use the same command hooks in LanDesk for the deployment for either EXE or MSI, nothing seems to work.

            So I guess what I am asking is what is the proper command hook sequence for general deployment of a product like Project 03, heck even Acrobat Standard 6 I'm having issues with?  General MSI command hooks that SHOULD work and do locally do not seem to work with Landesk.


            I know I have support for this product so I am going to give them a call as soon as I can today as I want to get several highly requested packages ready for deployment and tested.
