Hello!
I'm trying to deploy nxlog with GPO on windows, but sims like MSI package from https://nxlog.co/products/nxlog-community-edition/download not working properly.
After creating GPO nothing happens, I have tried install as well with scrip (cmd /c Msiexec /I \\file server\share\nxlog-ce-2.9.1716.msi /qn) nothing.

When I run the script on local PC getting the error "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package."

We using AD 2012 and windows 10/8 machines.
Is there any way to deploy nxlog massive on all PC's?

Thx

The manual chapter Deploying via Group Policy goes over how to install through GPO.

The error message you are getting, "This installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify that this is a valid Windows Installer package.", could indicate a few problems.

  • The file could be corrupted. There is a newer version nxlog-ce-2.10.2102.msi that you could download again to verify.
  • The account you are trying to install with does not have admin privileges.
  • You could have antivirus blocking it. Try temporarily disabling to check.

There are other possibilities, but I believe these are the most common ones.

It may be helpful to get a log from msiexec using /L*V or /L*VX :
msiexec /i "C:\nxlog-ce-2.10.2102.msi" /L*V "C:\log\example.log"
