WPKG – Setup did not finish as expected

While trying to deploy the WPKG client onto newly built systems, I kept encountering the following error:

“There is a problem with
this Windows Installer Package. A program run as part of the setup did
not finish as expected. Contagt your support personnel or package

I was trying to install using the MSI with a specified settings.xml file using the following command:

msiexec /qb! /i wpkgclient1-3-6.msi SETTINGSFILE=\\server\wpkg\settings.xml

Looking at the windows installer logs, it appeared that the problem was with the settings file, after checking it was valid XML, I found out that if full paths with drive letters were specified (Z:\settings.xml) it installed fine!
