  • Depending on the executable you would need to add some switches... for msi's they're typically as follows

    Windows ® Installer. V 4.5.6002.18005

    msiexec /Option [Optional Parameter]

    Install Options

    Installs or configures a product
    Administrative install - Installs a product on the network
    /j [/t ] [/g ]
    Advertises a product - m to all users, u to current user

    Uninstalls the product
    Display Options
    Quiet mode, no user interaction
    Unattended mode - progress bar only
    Sets user interface level
    n - No UI
    b - Basic UI
    r - Reduced UI
    f - Full UI (default)
    Help information
    Restart Options
    Do not restart after the installation is complete
    Prompts the user for restart if necessary
    Always restart the computer after installation
    Logging Options
    i - Status messages
    w - Nonfatal warnings
    e - All error messages
    a - Start up of actions
    r - Action-specific records
    u - User requests
    c - Initial UI parameters
    m - Out-of-memory or fatal exit information
    o - Out-of-disk-space messages
    p - Terminal properties
    v - Verbose output
    x - Extra debugging information
    + - Append to existing log file

    here is an example of one way that I script msi deployment with logging.

    Mind you this is just the command.

    msiexec /package #vAgentConfiguration.AgentTempDir#\payload.msi /qn /quiet /norestart /LIME #vAgentConfiguration.AgentTempDir#\payload_install.log
