Hi all, I have a user in a remote office that needs MOC 2007 installed on the system but never has time to install.  I also have a utility (Manage PC)that allows me to create a scheduled task on a remote system.  I wanted to know what options would I use with the Communicator.msi to make it a silent install with no prompts or pop-ups to the user while they were on the system? Oh the system is XP SP3 with Office 2003 installed.

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Hi Mac,
You can write this command below in the cmd

 \\myserver\Communicator.msi/quiet /norestart

OR put it as a login script as attached
Set App = Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
App.run "\\myserver\setup.exe /quiet /norestart"
Wscript.echo "application installed"
 
- This if you don't want the PC to restart.
- To restart after the installation just change the \norestart switch to \restart in line 2.
if you don't want the machine to restart leave the script as it is (copy and paste it into txt file then save it as .vbs)

Goodluck!
