Problem intalling .msi file via script

I am trying to install an .msi file from a software vendor via a .bat file and I am unable to do it. I have tried calling the file and using /quiet /q and /qn but it never installs. I can look in task manager and see msiexe.exe running as if it attempts to do something but eventually that process ends and the program is not installed.

 I am sure that a big part of the problem is that the vendor does not support doing this. I am trying to get it working anyway to help automate deployments of new machines.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make this work in spite of the vendor not supporting it?

Run it with detailed logging, collect the file, and post here.


msiexec /qn /l*v c:\installation.log /i my_installation.msi

normally a permissions error 1603.. A walkthrough is available @ http://support.microsoft.com/kb/834484 that shows how to setup the ntfs permissions

According to the log, here's what the installation wanted to tell you before it decided to exit.

------------------ProSystem fx Engagement Requirements------------------
ProSystem fx Engagement 7.0 requires Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redist - x86 9.0.30729.17 for all features.
SQL Server 2008 Native Client is required for the SQL 2012 instance.

Chances are, you will see this message if you run the installation without /q or /qn.

This was the issue. There were additional prerequisites that needed to be installed. Thank you for the fast response.
