Error 1603 when installing Endpoint silently

Hi!

I updated my Endpoint to the 2021 February update (version 10.7.0.1045.11).

Since then my script to prepare new machines is failing to install Endpoint silently over the network.

Here's the command line I'm using on my PowerShell script:

Start-Process "$Path\$Directory\setupEP.exe" -ArgumentList 'ADDLOCAL="tp" /passive' -Wait

It always worked with older versions.

 

Now I have to use the removal tool, restart the computer and install it again manually.

Only then it install normally.

Re: Error 1603 when installing Endpoint silently

@Pravas 

Hi! Sorry for the delay to reply, I didn't received an e-mail notifying your answer.

But am I using the wrong command line? I didn't understand why you sent me that link since it was working with previous versions.

I would like to know if there is another log file to troubleshoot that error 1603.

Re: Error 1603 when installing Endpoint silently

Hi @vandreytrindade,

Thank you for reporting the issue via a Service Request. I see that you managed to resolve it by understanding the wait message thrown by msi for another msi running in the background. There could usually be serval reasons behind an install failure when the error is 1603 since it is indeed a very generic error message.

I see that you have approved it for closure, however, should you need any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
