Bat file help

I have a bat file that installs 6 msi's and 1 exe.  I works perfectly until I deploy using SCCM.  SCCM thinks it has installed but nothing is installed.  I am trying to find a switch that will allow each msi to complete before moving onto the next.  Will "/wait" work for this?

Yes, you can try adding the /wait parameter to the start command and it should work correctly.

Do you mean?

msiexec /i ActivInspire.msi /quiet /qn /wait
msiexec /i ActivInspireCoreRes.msi /quiet /qn /wait
msiexec /i ActivInspireHWRRes.msi /quiet /qn /wait
msiexec /i ActivInspireHelp.msi /quiet /qn /wait
msiexec /i install_flash_player_11_3_plugin.msi /quiet /qn /wait
"ActivDriver_x86 v5.9.16 setup.exe" /S /v/qn/
or
should the /wait be placed before or after /i?  Sorry I am really new at this.

No, as far as I can tell there's no /wait switch in msiexec.exe. You should do it like so:
start /wait msiexec /i ActivInspire.msi /quiet /qn 
start /wait msiexec /i ActivInspireCoreRes.msi /quiet /qn 
start /wait msiexec /i ActivInspireHWRRes.msi /quiet /qn 
start /wait msiexec /i ActivInspireHelp.msi /quiet /qn 
start /wait msiexec /i install_flash_player_11_3_plugin.msi /quiet /qn
"ActivDriver_x86 v5.9.16 setup.exe" /S /v
