AppDeploy > FAQs > How Do I Deploy A MSI Patch (MSP)?
Script msiexec in a startup script.
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?
I dont have much luck with these things!
ah, was just looking at that! awesome...
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
What am i doing wrong? Doesnt run when i double click, just gives me the list of instructions. I never get these to work first time! lol

Have you tried putting the paths inside quote marks? as there's spaces in them...
There are spaces in the file pathsCode: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
Ok, will try that...
Can you guys see primarytargett racker.msi, that space isnt there, well its not supposed to be and then when i go to edit it my thread its apparently not there!
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...
Any ideas?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
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....
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?
