    So ive made my batch file to run. But im trying to add it into MDT... I did file somewhere on network drives

    Command line: cmd.exe /c msi_installers.cmd <----- cmd file i want to run
    Working Directory: \\imaging.rollins.edu\REMINST\Images\msi_installer s <-----path where msi_installers.cmd is located

    Make sense?

    I thought iTunes no longer required QuickTime from v10.5 onwards?

    has anyone notice when you force an application to reboot after install, and it resumes the software installs, sometimes you get an error about the network connection not being ready, seems like it rushes to connect again and the network card isnt ready, if u click retry it works. Is there a setting to make this last longer...

    When I deploy the iTunes and Quicktime bundle, I extract all the MSI's from the exe and then put the following in a .cmd file:

    Code:
    msiexec /i AppleMobileDeviceSupport.msi /quiet
    msiexec /i AppleApplicationSupport.msi /quiet /norestart
    msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /quiet /passive
    iTunesSetup.exe /quiet /passive /norestart
    Works a treat. Oh and these commands for 64bit version:

    Code:
    msiexec /i AppleMobileDeviceSupport64.msi /quiet
    msiexec /i AppleApplicationSupport.msi /quiet 
    msiexec /i Bonjour64.msi /quiet
    msiexec /i QuickTime.msi /quiet /passive
    iTunes64Setup.exe /quiet /passive /norestart
    Note, I save the relevant batch file into the same folder as the extracted msi's, then when I add the application to MDT I can point it to the folder and select installQT.cmd or whatever you want to call it

    when you call the cmd file in MDT, what line do you use? do you simple put Command Line: installitunes.cmd or something like cmd.exe /c installitunes.cmd

    using the cmd.exe /c itunessetup.cmd worked great for me! Thanks!

    Still mustering through some random programs from win 98 era that people are still using in the teaching lab here. sigh.

    Anyone have suggestions on approaching old dos base games / biology apps that dont really have an installer... they just need a shortcut to a .exe on the desktop, and the .exe sits in a folder on the C:\

    DosBox? (The app not our illustrious leader!)

    Install it on a PC and configure it with all the DOS apps/games on it
    The folder than then be dumped into a MSI or even just xcopy'd over..


    Edit: to clarify:
    you would need to install DosBox to all the Pcs, then XCOPY the config and games from the reference source

    Agreed, I've done the same with a couple of old apps that don't really have an 'installer' as such.
