Metalogix Archive Manager for Exchange 8.4 - Outlook Addin Installation Guide

Advanced mode

Advanced mode is designed for multi-user installations (e.g. installing by GPO), during updates and repair and at installing from command line. In advanced mode you can change almost every Add-in property (default registry values) and installation options using command line options.

Correct syntax:

msiexec /[option] [path to Archive Manager Outlook Addin Setup.msi file] PROPERTY=VALUE PROPERTY2=VALUE PROPERTY3=VALUE....

 

Property values that are literal strings must be enclosed in quotation marks. White spaces can be included in the string between the marks.

msiexec /[option] [path to Archive Manager Outlook Addin Setup.msi file] PROPERTY="Embedded White Space"

 

Incorrect syntax:

msiexec /[option] PROPERTY=VALUE [path to Archive Manager Outlook Addin Setup.msi file]
