Try to deploy Chrome to several workstation. If I use the syntax a, it could deploy properly but not for b. It script keep running but no error code is return. However, the .msi could be installed properly on the target computer. Any idea ?

Thanks

b. PSEXEC \\%%A msiexec.exe /i  C:\Temp\GoogleChromeStandaloneEnterprise.msi  /install

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.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

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
