MSI AddLocal MainProgram


#1

Hi,

I would like to use the PDFCreator-Business-3_3_0_15258-Setup_x64.msi to install PDFCreator.
It works fine if I use the commandline :
msiexec.exe -i"\mySrv\Install\PDFCreator\3.3.0.15258\PDFCreator-Business-3_3_0_15258-Setup_x64.msi" LICENSEKEY=XXXXX-YYYYY-ZZZZZ-AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC /qn /lv "C:\Outils\Exploit\Log\PDFCreator Business 3.3.0.15258.log"
But I don't care about extra feature, so I would like tu install only main program.
So I tried this command line :
msiexec.exe -i"\mySrv\Install\PDFCreator\3.3.0.15258\PDFCreator-Business-3_3_0_15258-Setup_x64.msi" ADDLOCAL=MAINPROGRAM LICENSEKEY=XXXXX-YYYYY-ZZZZZ-AAAAA-BBBBB-CCCCC /qn /l
v "C:\Outils\Exploit\Log\PDFCreator Business 3.3.0.15258.log"
And I got an error :

MSI (s) (F8:1C) [16:59:57:680]: Note: 1: 2711 2: MAINPROGRAM
Action start 16:59:57: CostFinalize.

The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2711. The arguments are: MAINPROGRAM, ,

How can I do that ?
Thank you for your help.

Ludovic.

PS : Is it possible to remove desktop shortcut ?

Hi @Ludovic,

Please change ADDLOCAL accordingly: ADDLOCAL=PDFCreator__,pdftools

We will update the user guide asap.
