I was given the following instructions from a vendor because I was having trouble pushing out a button within Outlook, to all of the PC's in our domain. The application appears to be loading...it says, 'now installing blah blah application' but it only takes 10 seconds. When it's done, it's not in add/remove programs, the service never installs etc.
They sent me the following and I need step by step instuctions on what to do with the instructions.
"These are the steps I was given to push the MSI out. The 1st step is to push out the interop assemblies for Office 2003 using the following script with a runonce command: (I don't know how to do this, and is it done on the server or desktop PC?)
Deploy the assemblies by startup script as an alternative Sample, with "runonce" (one line) if not exist %systemroot%\o2003pia.log msiexec /i \\server\share\o2003pia.msi /qb- /l*e %systemroot%\o2003pia.log (When i tried this, replaced the info with my server name and share etc. using cmd. it goes into this continual loop with DOS that never stops until I quit the dos prompt)
If this is successful, use the included DMConfig.XML file and the generic MSI to push out the button. Please do not use your DMConfig.XML file.(I guess the .msi and the DMConfig.XML go into my SDP, like normail
