How to use the quiet silent switch to deploy software through group policy
This may well be a case of summer holiday brain meltdown :drunken_smilie: but hopefully you will be able to assist.
I want to install a program on PCs when the computers boot up.
I have a file "setup.msi" that I added to group policy.
The setup requires admin privileges to install so I set it to run from the "Computer Settings" section.
However, event viewer reports that it fails.
I have a feeling that this is because it needs to be told to run in silent mode.
If I log in as an admin and run "setup.msi /qn" then it installs perfectly
I have read about using Orca/WinInstallLE to repackage or create a transform but it seems a really convoluted way to do it.
Am I missing something obvious? If not then what is the best/most reliable way to do it?
