Using a long install command-line in App Deply Toolkit


The following string for CadCorp Desktop SIS works fine from an elevated CMD prompt but I can't get it to run in the App Deploy Toolkit script , or in SCCM 2012.  What's the best way to treat a long install string like this ? Is it something to do with the extraction of the msi from the executable ?

"Cadcorp SIS Desktop 9.1.1797.64.exe" /s /v"/qn" /v"/norestart" /v"LICENCE_MODEL=Network" /v"LICENCE_SERVER_HOST=servername" /v"COUNTRY=1" /v"CC_CMDLINE_COUNTRY=GBR" /v”ADDLOCAL=x64SIS,x64Core,NTv2,OSTN,Libraries,Fonts,x64SISExe,x64SISLoader,x64Gazetteer,x64OSGBTools”

On trick would be to put the command into a batch file and just run the simple batch file name .

Also, do you have the cmd line syntax correct?  Not sure about this particular CadCorp app, but the silent command line usually look like this with just one /v and all the parameters in line:


"Cadcorp SIS Desktop 9.1.1797.64.exe" /s /v"/qn /norestart LICENCE_MODEL=Network LICENCE_SERVER_HOST=servername COUNTRY=1 CC_CMDLINE_COUNTRY=GBR ADDLOCAL=x64SIS,x64Core,NTv2,OSTN,Libraries,Fonts,x64SISExe,x64SISLoader,x64Gazetteer,x64OSGBTools”

Thanks for the suggestion. 
The command line was as supplied by Cadcorp support and works fine from a command prompt.  I ended up extracting the MSI , opening in Orca and creating a transform which seems to work fine.
