I wrote a logon script that works great except for the most important part, the application installation. Actually the application installs perfectly, however, it does not show up in Add/Remove Programs, but it is registered in the registry. For some reason if I run:

Msiexec.exe /qn /i "my.msi"

it installs but like I said, it does not show in Add/Remove Programs, but if I run with UI:

Msiexec.exe /i "my.msi"

it does show up in Add/Remove Programs.

The only thing that I can presume is that the actual msi package itself has been configured/constructed for this to occur, but I do not know why.

Should I use InstEd to break into the msi package and tweak it or what? I really need this application to show in Add/Remove Programs.
