I running a batch file to install cognos 7.4 for 1500 hundred users.
I  have written the batch file below. However whenever I run it on a test computer, I receive an error stating that the C:\ contain invalid path. My automatic installation would be aborted.
any ideas on how to fix this, or create an MSI package for GPO installation?
