I recently spoke with ScreenConnect support but we couldn't get it figured out so they told me to reach out here for assistance.

The issue - I need to install a .msi on a remote machine out of session via a batch file with appropriate silent triggers, as an administrator. My theory is to do this with a .scapp file and it seems like it will work, but it won't run as an admin. If I am in a session I can run the elevated tool through the host window but I need to do it out of session somehow. Can anyone offer any guidance for this?

Any help is appreciated!

running a tool without being connected should run the same as when connected. are you "unlocking" the system when you are connected?

you can check this site out and have a VBS run your batch file elevated


or you can try sending the file down with the SCAPP,place in a folder And then run the MSI from the command tab in SC
