Silent Installation Instruction

Using Group Policy to Deploy Applications on multiple computers
Enables faster and easier deployment

You can install Windows Installer packages (.MSI files) so it's a lot easier to deploy applications through the Active Directory than it used to be.

Setting up the actual deployment is simple. The biggest thing that you must remember is that the MSI file and the corresponding package must exist within a network share, and everyone must have read permissions for that share.

Install with any deployment tools which use MSI Setup (e.g. Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS), Group Policies, WinInstall, NetInstall, ZenWork, etc).

The package files have a .msi extension, and you manipulate them using the msiexec utility.

Download .msi package files:

For installation, use the /i and /qb switches. Use the /l* switch to produce a log file. You can provide a product serial number with properties SERIAL_NUMBER at the end of the command line.
For example, this command:

msiexec /qb /i myusbonly_setup.msi ENABLE_ADMIN=1 SERIAL_NUMBER="12345-12345-12345"

msiexec can do many other things, like uninstall software or apply patches.
