    Command line installs? heeellllppp

    I may be being incredibly dense here but I've spent an inordinate amount of time trying to understand what AppDeploy are going on about re: command line installs and trying desperately to understand how this relates to my current task(s) ie: installing over GPO.

    Specifically Quicktime [insert multiple expletives here] is causing me no end of grief as I try to get it installed.

    The only relevant install for the lastest version seems to be a command line install approach but I'm really quite clues as to how I could handle this via a GPO or script.

    vb Scripts, etc.. are most definitely not my strong point so assume low knowledge on this but right now if anyone has got some input on getting Quicktime installed successfully and silently I'm all ears..

    I believe that what they are talking about is the command to install it from a command prompt.

    For example, Quicktime uses InstallSield (IIRC) as its installer so you would use the InstallShield switches. I'm not at work at the moment but I think I just run quicktimeinstaller.exe /s (or similar) but for others you might want to add a isscript.iss file etc. Full explanations can be found for the most common installers on AppDeploy.

    To then install these via GPO, you can use the WindowsInstallerWrapperWizard (or whatever it's called) - you won't get 'self-healing' MSIs but they will work.

    Thanks Ric,

    I did think that might be it but I've been so trapped in the whole "remote deploy" mindset lately that I couldn't figure on anyone just wanting to create scripts for one line silent installs.

    Overall I think I MAY have found the solution to my immediate problem but what I'm unsure of is how I could apply a command line install solution to a file that could then be wrapped and installed via GPO..

    Time to get the piton and ice axe out for this learning curve I reckon
