installing an app via win32 method


Hi all,


I'm really struggling to install an app called smart (smart classroom suite) and have tried to use this for reference

but no luck! 


I have pointed the win32 to the .exe but not sure what to put for the install command or uninstall command. 


Please help!

@ABill1 I guess you can put all the files in one directory, create a install.cmd containg all the prereqs installs and the .msi like this?


dotNetFx40_Client_x86_x64.exe /q

msiexec /i "install_flash_player_11_active_x.msi" /qn

msiexec /i "SMARTEducationSoftware.msi" /qn


for uninstall.cmd you will have to find the GUID's for msiexec to uninstall, uninstall string should be in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\application\uninstallstring or HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\application\uninstallstring


This installation process is using MST file, I would use Orca and try it again. Here is an example that I wrote last year on how to use Orca in Intune Win32.

Hope this helps!
