need help with GPO based install of "FlexNet Inventory Agent.msi"

I have placed these three files in \\domain.suffix\NETLOGON

file 1) FlexNet Inventory Agent.msi

file 2)

file 3) mgssetup.ini

and configured a GPO, using Policies / Software Settings / Software installation, but the software will not install.

I've looked in the manual, couldn't find anything specific.  Tried setup.exe /a /s /v /qn but that fails with a "failed reading ini file". 

Does anyone have an actual worked procedure for this agent, please?

Thank you.  Dave.

Try looking for a log from the attempt to install the MSI file; it will likely give an indication of what went wrong (assuming the GPO software installation process gets as far as invoking msiexec).

The troubleshooting tips on the following page may be helpful too: How to troubleshoot software installations by using Windows application management debug logging

(I'd generally recommend installing the MSI directly - the setup.exe is rarely useful.)
