Syntax problem executing msiexec statement
Posted on 2008-10-28
I need to install a web application using the msiexec tool.
If I execute the following (commandline I copied from the internet) the msiexec tool executes but as expected, notifies me that the msi file does not exist.
msiexec /JM msisample.msi /T transform.mst /LIME logfile.txt
Now if I execute the following (my commandline), the windows installer help window pops up, giving all the command syntax options...which I gather, means there is a problem with the syntax of the commandline.
msiexec /JM C:\Solutions\Multiple Installs\Setup.msi /T BA2.mst /LIME logfile.txt
Why would the first one work and not the second?
From which command prompt should I execute the commandline?
Is it possible to put the commandline into a batch file and just run the batch file to install the application?
