Automated Installation using msiexec

Post by Guest » Thu Jul 12, 2007 10:43 am

I need to install PicoScope on 50 computers and so I'm trying to set up a script to install this automatically. I need to install the software on the D: drive and my Windows installation is on C:. I've extracted the MSI file from PicoFull_r5_16_2.exe and I've tried using this command:

msiexec /i PicoFull.msi /qn INSTALLDIR="D:\Pico\"

Although this installs PicoScope automatically, it is installed in C:\Program Files\Pico Tech and not D:\pico.

If anyone has any ideas it would be much appreciated. Thanks.

You are correct that this doesnt work for the pico installer. I've reported this as a bug.

If you are still going to use the command line I would reccomend that you use PicoFull_r5*.exe as it will delpoy the prerequistes for PicoScope. To pass parameters to msiexec via the bootstrapper use the /V swithc eg:

Code: Select all

PicoFull_r5*.exe /v “/qn INSTALLDIR="D:\Pico\" â€
