Scripting Bigfix Installation via .BAT File

Hey everyone,

I’m working on deploying Bigfix via script, and running into some issues. Here’s the command I’m using:

“\someservername\Automation_Installs\Bigfix\setup.exe” /i /L"1033" /v/quiet /v"INSTALLDIR=“D:\Program Files (x86)\BigFix Enterprise\BES Client”"

Also included in this folder is the following files:


Though Bigfix does attempt to install, it doesn’t appear to be using the clientsettings and masthead files. If we install without a script, by manually running the setup.exe, it works with no issues. Is there a switch that needs to be included to get the exe to recognize the clientsettings and masthead files? Do I have an error in my script?

If someone could provide examples on how to do this properly, that would be fantastic.

Thanks everyone!
