Do I need to pass silent switch for MSI installation job? If MSI package requires some property argument, how can I pass it?

SapphireIMS uses windows built-in WMI method to install MSI software which doesn’t require the silent switches. Hence no need to explicitly mention arguments such as /qn or /quiet to the MSI installer.

By default SapphireIMS tool append the ‘REBOOT=REALLYSUPRESS ’ switch to suppress the reboot of MSI package.

Apart from this, if the MSI package mandates any other PROPERTY as argument (argument in format: Propertyname=PropertyValue), that can be passed in the package configuration.

Attached document explains how to verify MSI installation with help of WBEMTEST tool.
