I have been tasked with setting up an SMS 2003 deployment to install the newest version of Firefox (3.5). This is available as an executable (.exe) download from the Mozilla website. Unfortunately, I have been unable to package this as an MSI using WISE, and so am left to use the 'setup.exe'. I have tried deploying usind the following command in the associated batch file;
'setup.exe
exit'
along with various switches (/q, /s, /silent) which do not work.

Once accepted by the remote PC, the SMS advertisement just hangs in a running state until it fails with a runtime exceeded error message.

Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
