When I run the following command in a task sequence, I get a 0x00000643 error on the client.

msiexec /i InstallBSR_v5.msi >>> of type Run Command Line with the source being a package.

I can run the command on the target machine manually and it works just fine.  I have tried running it as my Domain Admin account.

Does anyone have any ideas.

Hello,

if you want to install software through task sequence, please first go and create pacakge for your applicaion -> copy to distribution point -> create a new program with the following command line:
msiexec /i InstallBSR_v5.msi /q

then edit task sequence and add "install software" at the end of your task sequence then select the package and program that you create

Notes:
1- It's important to go proprties of prgram -> Environment -> Run mode "Run with administrator rights", and in program can run choose "whether or not a user is loged in".
2- Go to prgram -> advanced -> choose "Suppress program notification" and Allow this program to be installed from install software task sequence without being advertised.

Agree with a-Jaleel, the source should definitly be a self-contained packaged.

You should also advertise the software directly to a client to test, this will rule out the task sequence and make any other errors easier to troubleshoot, through advertisement logs/status on the client/server.

Would also advise changing your command line to be:
msiexec.exe /i InstallBSR_v5.msi ADDLOCAL=ALL /qn

This will get rid of all all user interaction and install all 'features' in the MSI.

I do about 3 to 4 deployments a day so I don't believe the issue is me creating packages and adverts.  The issue has something to do with that specific command line generating the error stated above.  Thanks for your suggesting on the command line changes Jamie77777; I did try that, but unfortunately it did not fix the issue.

The funny thing is that if I do this as a software installation via SCCM it works fine, just not as a task sequence.  I need it to be a task sequence because I need other things to be ran after the msi completes execution.

It could be related to something else in the Task Sequence.  Have you tried deploying using a Task Sequence, with nothing else in the Task Sequence?

If the deployment success without task sequece, that's mean package and command line are correct, I'm always deploying package with task sequence, the most important change in package before us it in task sequence is to configure:
1- It's important to go proprties of prgram -> Environment -> Run mode "Run with administrator rights", and in program can run choose "whether or not a user is loged in".
2- Go to prgram -> advanced -> choose "Suppress program notification" and Allow this program to be installed from install software task sequence without being advertised.

but if it fail too, can you please send to me smsts.log file on the client machine
for x86 c:\windows\system32\ccm\logs
for x64 c"\windiws\SysWOW64\ccm\logs

Honestly, I didn't use these changes as we changed the program we were using to distribute the MSI and change the program we were distributing.  I do however appreciate you suggestions and your willingness to offer continued assistance in reference to the issue.
