Apologies for what seems to be a newb question but i'm flumoxed on this one.
I'm trying to push an office update to our Mac estate. The issue that i've found is that I need to trigger the install three times for the installer to succeed. On the first push the Lan Desk client copies the dmg to the sdcache folder but does not run it. On the second push Lan desk launches the installer but it quits after 2 or 3 seconds. On the third push the update installs successfully. At every stage the Lan Desk console reports back a success.
Our Client OS is 10.4.11
Office version is 2004 r11.3.8
Landesk client version is 8.7
The update is for office 2004 r11.5.5
At anytime I can run the installer from the SDcache folder and it succeeds.
We have pushed half a dozen other dmg's this week without seeing this issue.
The DMG is not the problem, more likely the problem is what's inside the DMG. Office 2004 uses Vise installers which are not the best choice for silent or automated installs. You will probably be better off repackaging those updates.
