you need to take out the space between the /v and the /qn so the command shuold look like this,
hope this helps.
When I created the package for this outlook package, I typed in "office2003-KB924423-FullFile-ENU.exe /S /V/qn" at the Command Line but I ended up getting the following erroe message:
"Command line option syntax erroe. Type Command /? for Help" .
Please help and let me know what did I do wrong.
Many thanks in advance.
Did you try the package with the switches from the Microsoft site?
Try "office2003-KB924423-FullFile-ENU.exe /quiet /norestart"
On the command line try /quiet /norestart leave the exe off.
Thanks for your prompt reply. May I know at the command line :
Should I just type in try /quiet /norestart or "office2003-KB924423-FullFile-ENU.exe//quiet /norestart "
Just the switches they get passed to the EXE automatically
I think the correct switches you will need are: /q:a /c
"office2003-KB924423-FullFile-ENU.exe /q:a /c"
if you try the option /? you'll see all possible options of the unpacked file:
If you unpack the file (for example with 7-Zip) or with paramter
office2003-KB924423-Fullfile-ENU.exe /T:c:\temp /C
you can use the OUTLHOL.MSP file with msiexec.exe...
@LANDave: what do you mean with the option /q:a ?
You do not need the silent or no reboot switch in the package. The delivery method will silence and stop the reboot the package for you .That is why you are getting an error tring to build the package with those switches.
Just make sure you delivery method has the options set that you need before scheduling this package
The reason why I am looking for a way to install the patch silently is because if I don't use any switch, there will be a pop up window to prompt the user to install the patch. (see the attached picture)
