I'm using this command line to install MSIs (.NET):

msiexec myapp.msi SOMEPARAM="VALUE1" ALLUSERS-1 /quiet /passive

but the 'Windows Installer' window keeps popping up.  Anyone know what I might be doing wrong?

instead of using /quiet /passive use /qn and if you want to supress the reboot use /norestart

Actually, issue is that /i should be right after msiexec.

1. insert /package before the file name:

msiexec /package myapp.msi (...)

2. should be ALLUSERS=1 :

msiexec /package myapp.msi SOMEPARAM="VALUE1" ALLUSERS=1 /quiet /passive
