Run - Windows Installer


Can the Run - Windows Installer step use a a S3 Link as the MSI File Path?

Im trying to install the AspnetMVC4.msi to an already deployed web server that has already been bootstrapped so can’t really retrospectively add the files in.


Hi Craig

Thanks for getting in touch! I presume you’re talking about the community step template Run - Windows Installer?

From what I can tell, the step wont work with a file from S3, but you could easily download the msi from S3 first as part of a script step, and then execute it in the next step. Something like this:

(New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadFile($download_url, "$env:TEMP\myfile.msi")

Hope that helps!
