  • Not all msi's are created the same. What software are you asking about?
  • I am trying to install EndNote
  • What MSI authoring tool, if any, are you using?

The two links above tell you everything you need to install EndNote MSI with a License.dat file.

Silent Install for Volume Licenses

Msiexec /qn /i Installer_File_Name.msi

Msiexec /qn /i ENX6Inst.msi

Note: The MSI file needs to reside in the same folder as the License.dat file.

Zip them together Upload to KACE, call the MSI in the command-line options. Once deployed KACE will unzip and will install using that command line and it should see the License.dat if it's in the folder.
