Run program in VMWare Workstation
I have problems running a program on a VM which has program arguments.
I use the VMWare Workstation step and the command "Run program".
Then in the "program" line I call the program itself: [PathTo]\msiexec.exe. Then one line underneath I specify the parameters like /a myProgram.msi /qn.

When I execute this step the msiexec.exe is called, but the paramters are not correct. When I execute the same commandline directly on the VM everything is correct, so the parameters are right, essentially.
Any idea what's the problem here?

Make sure you're using v8.0 or later (earlier versions didn't quote parameters properly for the VMware runProgramInGuest command).

If that doesn't help, see
