Install MSI Unattended and to All Users

3 posts in this topic

Windows Installer packages (MSI) can be installed unattended using:

"MSIEXEC /i <packagename> /qb", where "<packagename>" is the name of the MSI package.

Some MSIs have a choice to install for all users or only the current user. When using the line above to install the package unattended, the package is installed only for the current user.

How can an MSI package be installed unattended for all users?

- m to all users, u to current user
I tried it and it did not work.

I have found the correct property:

MSIEXEC /i <packagename> /qb ALLUSERS="1"

OR

MSIEXEC /i <packagename> /qb ALLUSERS="2"

If Administrative privileges do not exist ALLUSERS="1" will fail to install; when ALLUSERS="2" an installation to the current user would occur.
