Issue/Introduction

I am trying to run an MSI install with the following command line:

msiexec /i “Filename.msi” ALLUSERS=2 /passive

When I push the application through Altiris is fails with MSI error 1639. However, if I navigate to the cache folder and run that same installation command in the command prompt it installs normally.

ERROR_INVALID_COMMAND_LINE

1639 (0x667)

Invalid command-line argument. Consult the Windows Installer SDK for detailed command-line help.
