Hi guys, in my test machine windows 7, with run CMD in administrator mode, I can have Reader 11 installed silently using
msiexec.exe /qn /i "c:\adobereader11\acroread.msi" PATCH="c:\adobereader11\AdbeRdrUpd11001.msp" allusers=true TRANSFORMS="c:\adobereader11\acroread.mst"
 
So I created a package in SCCM, I copied folder adobereader11 to a share. when i run the command in SCCM to push out

I tried three ways to push it out through SCCM (2007 R3), do not work. I can see the Advertisement go to the client machine, but Reader 11 did not installed.

1)      I copied the adobereader11 folder to \\server\share, in Package, Data source, I choose ‘this package contains source files’ and point source directory to \\server\share. Then I add in command line with
msiexec.exe /qn /i "acroread.msi" PATCH="AdbeRdrUpd11001.msp" allusers=true TRANSFORMS="acroread.mst"

2)      I copied the adobereader11 folder to SCCM server local C:\AdobeReader11, in Package, Data source, I choose ‘this package contains source files’ and point source directory to C:\adobereader11. Then I add in command line with
msiexec.exe /qn /i "acroread.msi" PATCH="AdbeRdrUpd11001.msp" allusers=true TRANSFORMS="acroread.mst"

3)      I copied the adobereader11 folder to \\server\share, in Package, Data source, I DID NOT choose ‘this package contains source files’ Then I add in command line with
msiexec.exe /qn /i "\\server\share\acroread.msi" PATCH="\\server\share\AdbeRdrUpd11001.msp" allusers=true TRANSFORMS="\\server\share\acroread.mst"
 
any ideas? thanks.

1) looks right to me.

However have a look here.

If you are running /qn switch, you must run the command prompt as "Run as administrator" and then run your command in that window.
