You have too many \

EXE-SOURCE = \\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\
Then you add \setup.exe
Which = \\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\\setup.exe

I've been trying to install Office2013 but something is not right in my syntax.
Using the "debug" flag, I can see:

Executing command: ' %comspec% /C start /WAIT %EXE-SOURCE%\setup.exe /adminfile %MSP-SOURCE%\myoffice2013.msp'

(' C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C start /WAIT \\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\\setup.exe /adminfile \\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\1customfile\myoffice2013.msp').

Command ' %comspec% /C start /WAIT  %EXE-SOURCE%\setup.exe /adminfile %MSP-SOURCE%\myoffice2013.msp'

(' C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe /C start /WAIT \\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\\setup.exe /adminfile
\\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\1customfile\myoffice2013.msp') was unsuccessful.
The parameter is incorrect.

Here is my xml file which as far as I can see there are no syntax errors:


         <package id="office2013" name="Microsoft Office 2013" 
revision="2013" priotiy="1" reboot="false">
         <check type="uninstall" condition="exists" path="Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2013" />
         <variable name="exe-source" value="\\IP\wpkg\soft\office13\"/>
         <variable name="msp-source" 

         <install cmd= " %comspec% /C start /WAIT %EXE-SOURCE%\setup.exe /adminfile
timeout="0"> </install>



If you spot anything wrong please let me know because I'm stuck at the moment. Even if I copy/paste the package from WPKG website I still get the same error.
