    Need a little help with installing EXE's

    ascoyne

      I am very new to PM so please excuse me if this seems a stupid question.

       

      I am trying to deploy a MSI, but it requires a few prerequisites for the installation to work.  To get around this issue I have added the prerequisite EXE install files to the package and then used Package Boot to launch the exe's to install the software prior to the MSI being installed.  The problem I have is that the EXE's don't seem to launch.

       

      The prerequisite is MS Visual C++ Redist 2010.  I have the vcredist.exe and put it in the package and set it to run the program with the switch command /qn /norestart as documented here  http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2010/10/20/10078468.aspx.  PM is reporting that is installed successfully, but it hasn't.

       

      I must be doing something wrong, but I can't seem to find what it is.

       

      Please can you assist?
