I feel silly posting this, but I'm baffled and nobody in my department seems to want to help me out or communicate.
I'm supposed to be rolling out a script tonight/tomorrow that installs a new version of one of our crucial programs.
I scripted it, it utilizes the command start /w and installs 3 or 4 different MSI's using MSIEXEC. My problem is, afterwards, applications that were originally installed by using an MSI (most importantly our ShoreTel Communicator program) are not opening. It appears they are trying to connect back to the original install location for whatever reason.
Behavior doesn't appear to be the same on different computers. One machine, the applications appears to launch, however I get an install bar and the following error message.
The path \server\apps\etc\etc\Shore Tel Communicator.msi cannot be found. Verify that you have access to this location and try again, or try to find the installation package ShoreTel Communicator.msi in a folder from which you can install the product ShoreTel Communicator.
Error 1706. No valid source could be found for product SHoreTel Communicator. The Windows Installer cannot continue.
This doesn't appear to be just this application. I rolled these MSI's out to two departments last night and our Financial area is reporting a similar error with one of their Financial programs.
I'm guessing this is happening because the local user doesn't have install rights. I really don't know how our GPO/Permissions are set. They are a mess and I don't handle that stuff.
Basically, what I'm asking is if anybody is aware of a situation where installing one MSI can cause issues to other applications that were installed by MSI's in the past.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm supposed to have a half day today however that doesn't appear to be happening. :(
