Dear Team,

I have a Msi file which will install the addins in outlook 2010. If i install the msi file with the options of Everyone, its installing successfully and loading the add ins in outlook.

If i log off and login with another user profile in the same computer(Win 7),  it is not loading the Add-ins in outlook. Then i need to open the msi manually and run and repair it. then its loading successfully.

Please let me know how to be install in computer fully with all the user who logging in the same computer. Also confirm, do we need to add any registry files to load the addins in every user profile

I tried with msiexec.exe /i "c:\Test.Msi" /Quiet

Can you give the exact command to install the MSI for all the users

Hi All,

Please find the below. i tried for installing and uninstall for the below batchfiles in the AD login script

UNinstall:

@echo off
msiexec.exe /x "\\testsrv\test.msi" ALLUSERS=2 /quiet /norestart

install:
@echo off
msiexec.exe /i "\\testsrv\testnew.msi" ALLUSERS=2 /quiet /norestart

Able to run both the Batch file individually. but i want to know is there any options to run this file in a single batch file and need to uninstall the old version and install the latest version of the Msi file in the user system at the same time. Also need to know if the new version is installed, it should skip the installation since its already been installed.

Please let me know is there any command to this task.
