How do I run an installation file MSI as administrator and create an installation log?

Authors list


Any program or .exe file can be run as administrator by right clicking and selecting Run as administrator. This is not possible with an MSI file. 

An MSI file is a Microsoft Software Installer, which handles its installations through Msiexec.exe. 

You might also wish to create an installation log if errors are thrown during the installation process.


Follow these steps to elevate your user rights to Administrator while installing: 

1. Start Command Prompt, then click Run as administrator.

 2. Run the following command in CMD (adjust the MSI file location and generated log location to match your paths):

msiexec /i "C:\Temp\Installers\Lasernet_10.6\Lasernet Server 10.6.0.msi" 

 

If, at the same time, you wish to create an installation log, expand the code with the following logfile switch: 

msiexec /i "C:\Temp\Installers\Lasernet_10.6\Lasernet Server 10.6.0.msi" /L*V "C:\Temp\example.log" 


Remember to provide Formpipe Support with the installation log for further investigation.
