MSI with parameters

Recommended Posts

I am trying to upgrade some software using PowerShell and I am not sure if my parameters are correctly formatted .  See highlighted text

 

# Silent Install Secure Secure Authentication
# http://repository.eset.com/v1/com/eset/apps/business/esa/windows/v2/2.7.32.0/esa_nt64_enu.msi

# Path for the workdir
$workdir = "c:\scripts\"

# Check if work directory exists if not create it

If (Test-Path -Path $workdir -PathType Container)
{ Write-Host "$workdir already exists" -ForegroundColor Red}
ELSE
{ New-Item -Path $workdir  -ItemType directory }

# Download the installer

$source = "http://repository.eset.com/v1/com/eset/apps/business/esa/windows/v2/2.7.32.0/esa_nt64_enu.msi"
$destination = "$workdir\esa_nt64_enu_v2.msi"

# Check if Invoke-Webrequest exists otherwise execute WebClient

if (Get-Command 'Invoke-Webrequest')
{
     Invoke-WebRequest $source -OutFile $destination
}
else
{
    $WebClient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient
    $webclient.DownloadFile($source, $destination)
}

Invoke-WebRequest $source -OutFile $destination

# Start the installation

msiexec.exe /i "$workdir\esa_nt64_enu_v2.msi" ADDLOCAL="Credential_Provider" /qb /L*v "c:\esa_install_log.txt"

# Wait XX Seconds for the installation to finish

Start-Sleep -s 35

# Remove the installer

rm -Force $workdir\esa_nt64*

      Hi,
      I think it misses the ability to monitor bandwidth on servers and users computers. It would be nice to have a history of several weeks and the services used.

      Hello and good day. Is there any way for Pulseway to notify me when the monitored system reaches a specific % threshold of RAM or CPU usage?

      Hello!

      Recently I've been experimenting a bit using scripts that contain variables that the user should enter.
      For example, a very simple one to shutdown a computer after X-amount of time: (example use-case:  I download large files during the night, so it doesn't count towards my ISP data-usage)

      @echo off
      set /p time=Enter time in seconds:
      shutdown /s /t %time%
      timeout /t 3 /NOBREAK
      exit

      however, upon executing said script, the app doesn't request for the variable to be filled out. (I guess it's not made for such uses)
      Obviously, i can manually enter the command using CMD, but i don't want to be typing the command every time i need it. (you can call me lazy :p)

      Any ideas how to do this correctly?

      Is there a way to kick off an automated task based on a notification or alert.  For Example, if we get a notification of a disk getting full, I would want the automation to run: 
      <Open a ticket>--> <add predetermined note>--> <add 15 minutes>--><run task to clean drive>--><send notification that task has completed>--><close ticket>
      Is this possible now, or should this be a feature request?
      Thank you,
      dp

      I want a program to always run on my computer. Is there a script that forces a program to restart after its process has been stopped?
      Thanks in advance
