How to install Visio 2010 Pro via SCCM 2007
I am having difficulty installing Visio Pro 2010 via SCCM 2007. I read in a blog and was advised to create a XML file as follows
The XML file I used was as follows:
<Display Level="none" CompletionNotice="no" SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />
<PIDKEY Value="<ENTER CD KEY HERE>" />
<USERNAME Value="<USER NAME HERE>" />
<COMPANYNAME Value="<COMPANY NAME HERE>" />
Name this as "config.xml" or equivelent and when creating the program in SCCM use the following: setup.exe /config <path to XML file>
I am confused with which command line to run in SCCM for this, i have placed the Config.xml file in the same location of the setup file, running this command line
setup.exe /config c:\visio pro\config.xml
but this is not working, nothing actually happens. Can anyone advise me on how to install this via SCCM 2007?
Running from SCCM is either going to run from a DP, or from the SCCM cache - unless you've specifically set the cache directory to 'C:\Visio Pro' it's not going to be in that location.
setup.exe /config config.xml
If the config.xml is in the same location as the setup.exe it will be found and the installation run with it.
In your first example, is there an actual "C:\Visio pro" folder? Leave the config in the folder with the setup.exe just use "config.xml" (it looks like you have sorted this bit)
I partly agree with EdT, use an MSP, but put it next to the exe NOT in the updates folder. (this allows you to use multiple custom MSP's if needed, more useful with Office and Enterprise media)
the command line to use is:
"%~dp0setup.exe" /config "%~dp0VisioStd_config.xml" /adminfile "%~dp0Visio_2010_Std_01.msp"
The %~dp0 makes it fill in the path to the files, not really needed for SCCM, we use it so people can run batch files from UNC paths.
If you are getting an issue with the XML, try dragging it into IE, if it does not display correctly, sort your XML. I had this a while back, I could not see anything wrong, but decided to copy it from the Visio.ww folder, it was all OK.
Remember, you have to take the comments out of both ends of the line.
Ihave found the solution to this that worked for me. I have managed to install Visio Pro 2010, viaSCCM 2007 using a config.xml file.
Thedetails in the config file are as follows
<DisplayLevel="none" CompletionNotice="no"SuppressModal="no" AcceptEula="yes" />
Notethe the Configuration Product for Visio Pro is Visio, for any other Visio edition check the Product ID and usethat.
The PIDKEY value again is specific to Visio Pro, you will need to use thePIDKEY for your edition of Visio.
Isaved the config.xml file in the same location as the setup.exe file.
1. Packaged Visio in SCCM saying the Package hasa Source directory (this will be the UNC path of the config.xml file andsetup.exe file), put that in the Source Directory
2. I used the Command line setup.exe /config config.xml
Make sure you make the Advertisement to Download content from Distribution Point andrun locally.
The Pidkey isthe KMS Client Key for Visio, below are the keys to use for the edition ofVisio you are installing.
A big thank you to Dunnpy, EdT and Badger, a great help.
