Hi, Nyhuss,
Thanks a lot for this great video with very simple and clear english. I am learning Application packaging and new in this profession. Can you make step by step videos for Packaging & Re-packaging application using different tools which are in the market right now. It will be so helpful for me and other people who are trying to get into this procession. Thanks again for publishing this great video.

An MSI-type package was used as an example. Would you like to make a video using EXE package? because silent parameters of an MSI is almost universal, while EXE is specific to each package and this would be interesting in how to implement EXE using PSADT.

I worked with AutoIT (Lua Scripting Language) for 2 Years before. I switched to PSADT couple weeks ago and I love it!

How do I add additional parameters to that config file? There are many applications that have different install variables so would be good to know how to deploy applications with these in mind.

Can you please do a video demonstrating how to use PSADT to deploy an application using SCCM? I would be very grateful!

This is awesome, but not all MSI take the default reboot options as defined in the config file. Take Adobe Reader DC, the reboot options for that MSI is norestart. How do I edit the config for that? I tried editing the options in the file, but it failed to load. If I add it as a switch in the installation section of the deploy-application.psi, it does not work. Anyone with ideas for this?

Great! But what do I do about programs that have serial numbers, intricate install questions like AutoCAD, or Creo?

This assumes there are no prompts. How do you get it to interact with the installer process pick options?

I have a question. Can this be used on a Windows 10 system that requires local administrator rights to install all applications. No local users (outside of the admin account) have admin privileges.
