Executing MSI installer from Network Location

Recommended Posts

I created a script to install an MSI installer.  However is I point to a Mapped Drive such as Z:\Working Directory\Installer.MSI it does not execute.

If I execute the script from the C:\Temp\Installer.MSI it installs successfully.  I've even tried using a UNC Path \\SERVERNAMER\Working Directory\Installer.MSI and it does not execute.

Why is this?  Does Pulseway not have permission to see the network share?  Is there an area when creating the task that I need to enter network credentials.  I don't see this.

Please advise what I am doing wrong or overlooking

Your UNC path may contain a space. Did you put quotes ( " ) around the UNC path? If not, try it like this

"\\SERVERNAMER\Working Directory\Installer.MSI"
