[Solved] Error using Commandline Options when deploying MSI Package

I am trying to deploy a Start Menu Button application from

Their documentation says that by using the following command line options with the MSI the application will install one portion of the overall application. It this case it is "/qn ADDLOCAL=ClassicStartMenu". Note I have confirmed the application will install using those command line options when I type them by hand.

However, when I try to deploy the MSI via WSUS Package Publisher using that command line option, I get a 80070667 error on my client computers. Researching this error suggests that their is a problem with the command line options.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

Can you try without using /qn? I guess this will be used by default.

Unfortunately, the /qn isn't that important. All it says is quiet install I need the ADDLOCAL option to work to determine what options should be installed.

I just can't figure out why the option works then typed by hand, but fails though WSUS.

Can you post a screenshot of the parameter in wpp package? Try using only addlocal=classicstartmenu without / or anything else.

NorbertFe have right. Do not put /qn in your CommandLine, Wsus will add it itself.
Do not use quotes.
Try with only : ADDLOCAL=ClassicStartMenu
If it's doesn't work, Revise the update and check the "Can Request User Input" Checkbox.

Turns out that the "Can Request User Input" Checkbox fixed the problem.
