Hello to everibody
i'm new to Landesk 9.0, previously we have LDMS8.7 and i usually deploy Office 2010 with a Batch like this:
tasklist /FI "IMAGENAME eq outlook.exe" 2>NUL | find /I /N "outlook.exe">NUL
if "%ERRORLEVEL%"=="0" taskkill /IM outlook.exe
msg * Ora procedo con l'aggiornamento di Outlook !
net use k: \\dia-pat01\landesk_packages
setup.exe /adminfile packages\myoutlook.msp
net use k: /delete
so i close Outlook (in this case) if it's open and the i start installation from a network share. in old ldms8.7 i start the batch and after 3 or 4 seconds the install of Office 2010 start showing the user interface with settings contained in my msp file (so the only interaction with the user is showing the UI and progress bar only.
in this new version i see only the message "Ora procedo con l'aggiornamento di Outlook !", the network map is created and then "the darkness", the app run and run and run again.
i try to launch on a batch file and the task is completed in some minutes requesting no input from user.
why with old LDMS this task runs correctly and with the new version not ? and again : how is the best practice to install Office 2010 with transform files ?
PS deploying MSI file is much better than with the older version and runs without problems.
