    There's a patch for my earlier Target Tracker problem and it's in a MSP format. How do I deploy it out to workstations?

    Have you tried putting the paths inside quote marks? as there's spaces in them...

    Need quotes

    Code:
    msiexec /p "\\CURRICSVR1\PACKAGES\Target Tracker 11.9.3\primary target  tracker 11.9.3 upgrade.msp" /a  "\\CURRICSVR1\APPS\TargetTracker11.9\primarytargett  racker.msi" /qb
    There are spaces in the file paths

    ARGH! Im having real fun with this one!

    I've had internal 2203 errors, ive had it just hang and then disappear...

    I'm probably doing something really fundamentally wrong.....

    I've set up as a Startup script under Computer configuration....it's a BAT. Theres an error with the BAT itself i think as it wont run straight from the file either...

    help...

    msiexec /p "\\CURRICSVR1\PACKAGES\Target Tracker 11.9.3\primary target tracker 11.9.3 upgrade.msp" /a "\\CURRICSVR1\APPS\TargetTracker11.9\primarytarget tracker.msi" /qb /L* C:\log.txt
    Any ideas?

    might be worth running the msp manually one 1 pc make sure that its not faulty and it does change the version no etc

    running the msp as is does result in a change of version to 11.9.3. Iinstalled it on my machine as soon as i got it and it works fine. According to the log above its applied but i still recieve error and the version is still 11.9.0....

    *sigh*

    You're applying a patch to an msi located in a shared location for the purpose of being able to install that msi via gpo.

    The workstations allready have the software installed and patching the msi on the share is not going to update the workstations until the software is redeployed.

    Make a new folder with the new version and copy all the install files to there, run the patch against the copy, deploy the new copy to a test machine.

    If the test is successful unallocate the original msi from the machines and thus uninstall it and push out the new version?
