created the install package with the wizard, tested the install just fine. Now my .exe file that has the codes is now showing up as a short cut only. I've attached what I see in explorer and the script when I open it with notepad ++

 

Please help!! :smileysad:

Is this a deployment wizard?

Is there a reason you needed to create a deployment instead of just running the setup?

we're running SCCM 2012 and install most software via un-attended install using SCCM

I see.  If you just run the shortcut, does it launch the installer?  That's the purpose of creating the deployment.

Did you make your deployment correctly?

 

You need to make a shared folder on the server with full write access to everyone and configure the deployment to run via that UNC path.  I recommend \\servername\share, with full control to the everyone built-in user account.  I also recommend that you uncheck silent mode if you are having issues. 

 

Don't use drive letters in your deployment or forget to set sharing *and* folder permissions on the location of the files. 

 

Additionally, I do not recommend including a service pack with the deployment, initially.  Get everything working and tested first.
