    Why wont this application install?

    Hi,

    I am trying to deploy Macromedia Studio 8 (old i know!). I have made a script that half works. Some machines it runs fine and installs. Nothing is installed and reports back exit code 1. If i run it manually on the problem machines, it installs fine.

    We are using SCCM 2012 SP1

    Any thoughts please?

    This is my script

    Thanks

    Code:
    msiexec.exe /i "FSCOMMAND\Macromedia Fireworks 8.msi" /passive
    msiexec.exe /i "FSCOMMAND\Macromedia Flash 8.msi" /passive
    msiexec.exe /i "FSCOMMAND\Macromedia_Dreamweaver_8.msi" /passive
    
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0\Installer.mlf" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0\Installer.mlf"
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0\License" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0\License"
    
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0\Installer.mlf" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0\Installer.mlf"
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0\License" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0\License"
    
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0\Installer.mlf" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0\Installer.mlf"
    if exist "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0\License" del "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0\License.mlf"
    
    copy "License Files\Fireworks 8.0\Installer.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0"
    copy "License Files\Fireworks 8.0\License.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Fireworks 8.0"
    
    copy "License Files\Flash 8.0\Installer.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0"
    copy "License Files\Flash 8.0\License.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Flash 8.0"
    
    copy "License Files\Dreamweaver 8.0\Installer.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0"
    copy "License Files\Dreamweaver 8.0\License.mlf" "C:\ProgramData\Macromedia\Licensing\Products\Dreamweaver 8.0"

    It could be tripping over flash in silent mode, they sometimes installed older versions with their apps that get confused when newer versions are present.

    Its flash professional not player. It seems to work if you run in manually, IE double click the batch file.

    Well, running as you is both in interactive mode and with network privileges, depending on how the script is initiated it could be suppressing something the instalerr wrongly needs.

    I'm just remembering the machines I had to manually patch versions of Macromedia flash to install then restore and reregister adobe flash.

    They both do the same thing the only difference is /qn shows no installer box where /passive does.

    What do your log files say i.e.

    Code:
    msiexec /i "FSCOMMAND\Macromedia Flash 8.msi" /l*v Flash.log /qn

    Some MSIs do different things depending upon whether the UI is shown or not.

    That box may be tripping out if it's hitting a security block because the dialogue is GDI, suppressing it fully may help depending on how your script is run.
