Mail Express Add-In "silent" installation shows installation progress

Karla Marsh
Mail Express

THE INFORMATION IN THIS ARTICLE APPLIES TO:

  • Mail Express, version 3.0.0

(fixed in v3.0.1)

SYMPTOM

When creating the Outlook Add-in installation script via the Add-in Installer section of the Mail Express Administration page, the command line parameter options that are created include the /qb options. The q option specifies a quiet install, but the b option specifies a basic UI install. Because of this, the end user will see the installation progress when the script is run. If you do not want the end user to see the installation progress when the script is run, use the following workaround.

WORKAROUND

Remove the b from the command line parameters and/or replace it with an n. For example:

Original text that will display installation progress:

msiexec /qb /i \\server\[share_name]\mailexpressoutlookaddininstaller.msi

Modified text that will not display installation progress:

msiexec /q /i \\server\[share_name]\mailexpressoutlookaddininstaller.msi

A list of all valid msiexec options can be viewed by running the msiexec /? command from a command line window.
