MSI Deployment with Property Changes

    Has anyone utilized a script to install Revu by using the MSI file installer and also changing properties (disable auto-update, change net config location, etc.)?

    Since we don’t have a install wizard to setup the install anymore, I’m trying to setup a script to push these changes with the install. The BB Admin and Deployment guides appear to make this possible via a script (.bat file), but I’m having issues making it work.

    I have a note into BB support, but thought I’d ask the question here as well.

    Here’s what I have setup currently (that’s not working):

    msiexec.exe /i “\\server\serverfolders\MSIBluebeamRevu21.0.50×64\Bluebeam Revu x64 21.msi

    BB_AUTO_UPDATE=0

    BB_DISABLEANALYTICS=1

    BB_NETCONFIG=\\server\folder\folder2\standards\Bluebeam\Net Config

    BB_REVUPREFERENCES=\\server\folder\folder2\standards\Bluebeam\Preferences\FGMA_RevuPreferences21.xml /qn

    I’m not sure it was helpful, but I sent you some information.

      Yep, thanks Troy. It helped make sure I had the proper context for the options.

      Support helped get the formatting correct since I needed everything to be in one line.

    Looks like I finally have the proper context/syntax for the bat file to install Revu along with properties to change with the install. I had all the content being separate lines and everything needs to be 1 line with everything separated with spaces.

    Here’ the final script that we’re using to install Revu:

    rem Install Revu 21 with Options

    msiexec.exe /i “\\servername\serverfolders\MSIBluebeamRevu21.0.50×64\Bluebeam Revu x64 21.msi” BB_AUTO_UPDATE=0 BB_DISABLEANALYTICS=1 DISABLE_WELCOME=1 BB_NETCONFIG=\\servername\serverfolders\Bluebeam\Net?Config BB_REVUPREFERENCES=\\servername\serverfolders\Bluebeam\Preferences\FGMA_RevuPreferences21.xml /qn

    One of the things I needed to do was to make sure any folders that have a “space” in the name were replaced with a ? mark. In our folders, that was making the Net Config folder in the script to read Net?Config, otherwise the script would fail.
