MSI Automation / Silent Install

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Currently we are running on managed client and I'm trying to deploy the MSI installer via Intune and failing every time it tries to install.

I have the /qn flags on it, but I am noticing when just running this MSI as a local admin, it refuses to run due to not having admin rights until I do a right click -> run as admin. I'm sure this has everything to do with why it's failing.

Anyone ever been in this scenario and get this to work successfully? Intune would be executing it in the SYSTEM context, which should have all the rights it needs.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi @Shmoe

Right clicking and running as admin is the way these offline installers operate and this must be done for the EXE. The MSI version should be invoked via an admin elevated cmd with the command: msiexec /i C:\example\path\to\clientsetup.msi /qn

It's possible that your Intune app may want you to use: msiexec /a C:\example\path\to\clientsetup.msi /qn is also quite out of date, we are on

Upgrade steps:
