Try to run the following command. The script starts but it doesn't seem to be end.

PSEXEC \\LT-0172 -u mydomain\admin -p myPassword msiexec.exe /i  "\\hkchk01\d$\copy\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi"  /install

Did you monitor the remote PC? Maybe there is a prompt, though it shouldn't be that way.

Yes, but nothing appears on the remote PC.

Strange. I assume it just works if you call that MSI locally?
Does psexec still wait for something if you use it to execute the MSI remotely, or do I get that wrong?

As a test, I use PDQDeploy and it works fine. I have coped the following command and deploy using the psexec. Still get the same problem. No prompting on the target workstation.

 PSEXEC \\%%A msiexec.exe /i  \\HKFSVR01\share_drive\public\Google Chrome\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi ALLUSERS=1 /q /norestart


The MSI is downloaded from the following :
http://www.google.com/intl/en/chrome/business/browser/

Is there a chance to take a run on your workstation and see how it goes ?

Thanks

Oh, there is a path with spaces! That does not work. Strange enough, msiexec seems to wait for something in that case - I could not see what exactly happens, there are no prompts or hidden windows, and no debug trace.

Try if that one works:
PSEXEC \\%%A msiexec.exe /i  "\\HKFSVR01\share_drive\public\Google Chrome\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /q /norestart

Open in new window

Run the following :

psexec  \\LT-0172  msiexec /i "\\hkfsvr01\e$\share_drive\corporate\public\Google Chrome\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi" ALLUSERS=1 /q /norestart

It returns the error  "msiexec exited on LT-0172 with error code 1619".

Any idea ?

Thanks
