    Hello there,
    i sucessfully used this great toolkit to uninstall and reinstall Office and it works great. So I thougt it shouldnt be a Problem ti deploy a msi with it but I´m havin Trouble with it.

    The first attemp:
    I tried to call the MSI file directly in the script:
    The MSI File is in the Folder toolkit\Files the DeployApplication script in the Folder toolkit
    The original Installation instructions from the vendor is:
    msiexec /i “\\serverName\verzeichnis\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise.msi” CMDLINE=”/clientinstall ALLUSERS=””TRUE”” connectionfile=””\\serverName\verzeichnis\connect.info”” folder=””C:\Programme\InLoox\InLoox PM””” ALLUSERS=2″ /quiet

    @ my script:

    `## <Perform Installation tasks here>
    {
    Show-InstallationProgress -StatusMessage ‘Inloox wird installiert’
    Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path ‘InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi’ -Parameters “CMDLINE=/clientinstall ALLUSERS=””TRUE”” connectionfile="inlooxmo_connect.info” folder="C:\Programme\InLoox\InLoox PM” ALLUSERS=2 /quiet” -WindowStyle Hidden -IgnoreExitCodes ‘3010’
    `
    but it desn´t work
    So I tried it local at a test Client

    OK so I created a bat file that contains :

    msiexec /i “C:\TEMP\Toolkit\Files\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi” CMDLINE=”/clientinstall connectionfile=””C:\TEMP\Toolkit\Files\inlooxmo_connect.info”” folder=””C:\Program Files (x86)\InLoox\InLoox PM”””

    wow great bat file works the msi began to install

    so I went to powershell and tried:
    Execute-Process “C:\TEMP\TOOLKIT\Files\install.bat

    wow great works

    ok back to the script an try with bat file:


    ## <Perform Installation tasks here>
    {
    Show-InstallationProgress -StatusMessage 'Inloox wird installiert'
    Execute-Process "C:\TEMP\Toolkit\install_inloox.bat"
    }

    but nothing happend
    The notification of closing Outlook and so on all works great but there is no Installation of the Software..

    Any Ideas?

    This forum is meant for finished deployment scripts you wish to share with the community. Your question is better posted under the “General” forum.

    What does the log file generated by the script say? Is there any error message? There should be some clue in the log.

    well hello there, I tried with an older Version ( 3.6.2)aaaaand

    The log you posted doesn’t show that Execute-MSI was ever executed. Is that the wrong log file?

    Also, why is your Execute-MSI call inside a script block like so?
    ## {
    Execute-MSI…
    }

    Hi sorry for the long delay,

    the log is the correct one an that is / was the problem no execution startet.
    I used the same script @ Version 3.6.2 and everything works.

    Post your full script so I can see if I can execute it on my end.

    Also, like I asked above, why is this code in an un-named scriptblock like this?:

    ## <Perform Installation tasks here>
    {
    Show-InstallationProgress -StatusMessage 'Inloox wird installiert'
    Execute-Process "C:\TEMP\Toolkit\install_inloox.bat"
    }
    

    Un-named scriptblocks don’t get executed unless you put a . or an & in front of them like this.

    ## <Perform Installation tasks here>
    . {
    Show-InstallationProgress -StatusMessage 'Inloox wird installiert'
    Execute-Process "C:\TEMP\Toolkit\install_inloox.bat"
    }
    

    or

    ## <Perform Installation tasks here>
    & {
    Show-InstallationProgress -StatusMessage 'Inloox wird installiert'
    Execute-Process "C:\TEMP\Toolkit\install_inloox.bat"
    }
    

    If you’re executing this exact same code in 3.6.2, then it would not run either. I think something is wrong with your code, not the toolkit. Go over your code again.

    First of all, the quotes are all over the place, and therefore PowerShell doesn’t know when the command starts and stops. It also will not pass the quotation marks on to msiexec. The parantheses in “Program Files (x86)” can also create issues.

    Let’s start with the command in the script, I’ll replace the quotes with brackets, so you can see what’s wrong:

    msiexec /i {C:\TEMP\Toolkit\Files\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi} CMDLINE={/clientinstall connectionfile=}{......

    The CMDLINE option is outside the quotes, and powershell will either fail, or exclude everything after the first set of quotes.

    Try this, I have escaped quotation marks we want to send on with grave-accent, and replaced the folder path with an environment variable:

    <pre class=”brush: powershell; gutter: true; first-line: 1; highlight: []; html-script: false”>Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path "$dirFiles\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi” -Parameters "CMDLINE=”/clientinstall” connectionfile=”$dirFiles\inlooxmo_connect.info” folder=”${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\InLoox\InLoox PM" /quiet ALLUSERS=2"

    If the installer needs all the crazy quotes:

    <pre class="brush: powershell; gutter: true; first-line: 1; highlight: []; html-script: false">Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path &quot;$dirFiles\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi” -Parameters &quot;CMDLINE=”/clientinstall connectionfile=”$dirFiles\inlooxmo_connect.info” folder=”${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\InLoox\InLoox PM&quot;”`” /quiet ALLUSERS=2"

      Since I can’t find a way to use the grave-accent in this forum, I replaced it with the number 1, you’ll have to replace all occurences of 1 to a grave-accent for this to work:

      Execute-MSI -Action Install -Path "$dirFiles\InLoox_PM_WorkgroupEnterprise_825.msi” -Parameters "CMDLINE=1”/clientinstall connectionfile=1”1”$dirFiles\inlooxmo_connect.info1”1” folder=1”1”${Env:ProgramFiles(x86)}\InLoox\InLoox PM1"1”1” /quiet ALLUSERS=2"
