Notes:

  • Use of Product codes on commandline has not yet been implemented.
  • Generally a product will ship with an executable (.exe file) which provides a more user friendly mechanism for installing the product. Where possible you should use the .exe provided by the application developer. The file name will usually contain "setup" or "install" in its filename.

Example(s)

msiexec /i msxml3.msi
