Deploy application using MSI package.
Posted on 2013-02-05
We service about 550+ users. We need to start deploying application updates, virus patches, Flash, Java etc etc.. using MSI packages. We have install Impero on all client machines. Impero allow us to push application updates out to all our clients via MSI files.
So, for example, we want to roll out the latest Java update. We need to convert the .exe to an MSI package, we need to make sure that no user interaction is required when pushing out the MSI package, how?
I've tried using Exe to MSI converter, using the GUI mode which allows you to install the application (Java in this case) and record button presses, then it builds the MSI package.
However, no matter how many times I try it will not work. When clicking the newly built MSI package, it just comes up with an installation applet that completes and does nothing, it does not actually load or even start the application it's meant to be installing. e.g. it does not bring up the java window.
Can you recommend a way,
