Unknown Fucntion Name When Running Msi Install

Recommended Posts

Hi

I'm using the following command:

Run("msiexec /i g:\ts3\ts3.msi /qn SERVER="myserver" ADDLOCAL="ALL"")

If I run this from the "Run" dialog box in Windows it works fine, but from within an autoit script I recieve an "unknown function name" error when it gets to the myserver part.

The SERVER="myserver" and ADDLOCAL="ALL" are additional parameters specifict to the ts3.msi file, so I'm guessing it's something to do with this.

Anyone got any ideas what I can do about this ?

many thanks

You need to double the quotes around "my server" too :)

Run("msiexec /i g:\ts3\ts3.msi /qn SERVER=""myserver""  ADDLOCAL=""ALL"" ")

should work i guess

It's the Quote-Signs... either use doubled quotes (makes reading more difficult) or use ' instead:

Run('msiexec /i g:\ts3\ts3.msi /qn SERVER="myserver"  ADDLOCAL="ALL" ')

1st time that I have seen anyone use quotes in a MSI propertyname value. No spaces used, right?
