Try not to use HTML in the posts sent to mailing lists.
Otherwise, people get lots of garbage, and look above what happened

Nothing happened, because you used /quiet switch, and all the output was
logged to Windows Event Log.

If you want more info printed on the screen, use /debug instead of /quiet.

You said that a user with administrative privileges did run this command.
Generally, in 99,99% cases, it's someone with Administrator or SYSTEM
privileges who needs to run the command.

Probably, the software was installed, provided that "msiexec -i
\\ivantest\zip\zip.msi -q allusers=1" really installs "Zip".

But your "Zip" entry in packages.xml is incomplete, you will need at
least one check condition (check the wiki (silent installers), you will
find plenty examples), or use 'execute="once"' if you have no clue what
check condition might be (this one should be used for scripts that leave
no trace in the system, like setting the time etc., and is discouraged
for software installation, which always leaves some traces like new
files or registry entries).
