Windows 10 Managed Installation with MSI Will Not Run
10/06/2016 1420 views
I've got a Managed Installation that points to a software record with an associated file (MSI), but it will not install on a Windows 10 PC. I selected Override Default Installation and entered /a Surface_Dock_Updater_v126.96.36.199.msi /qn /L*V "install.log" in the Full Command Line: field. It downloads to the Windows 10 PC, but it will not complete the install and does not even generate a log. I am able to get it to complete the install and generate a log if I manually launch a command prompt As Administrator and run the exact same command as above.
Am I doing something wrong or does Windows 10 require a different method of running MSIEXEC via the K1000?

The command line argument '/a' performs an administrative install, i.e. if the MSI contained an internal cabinet, it extracts the files to a target folder and creates a "new" MSI with flags that it is now an uncompressed MSI. If it was already uncompressed, the files are merely copied to the target location, along with the MSI.
