silent upgrade


Recommended Posts

Hello I am looking for some assistance on silent upgrades using SCCM. I am attempting to package V4.0.6 and some of the machines this will go on already have a very dated 3.5.11 install on them. It appears the silent installer does not handle an upgrade from builds this old.

 

What is the best way to have this happen? Is there a list of GUIDS for each build so I can write a script that runs before the 4.X installer?

I don't have a list of the MSI GUIDs.

 

But, each machine will have the guid for whatever version is installed at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ paint.net \ ProductCode

Rick,

 

Thank you for that information. I was able to get an uninstall batch file running and seems to work fine.

 

However now I am seeing when the installer for 4.0.6 starts to run it stops immediately. Event logs show a start and stop in the same second. I created the MSI and the command line I am using is quite simply "PaintDotNet4_0_6_x64.msi /auto" is there something else that I am missing?

/auto isn't a valid parameter for an MSI. /auto is only for the installer exe. Here are instructions for using MSI for deployment: http://www.getpaint.net/doc/latest/UnattendedInstallation.html

 

But, please don't install 4.0.6. It's already obsolete. 4.0.12 is the latest version.
