    Doing something wrong here. It hangs at this part.

    VERBOSE: [server]: [[Package]Splunk] Package configuration starting
    VERBOSE: [server]: [[Package]Splunk] Starting C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe with /i
    "C:\windows\Temp\splunk.msi" /quiet INSTALLDIR='C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder' AGREETOLICENSE=Yes /QUIET
    VERBOSE: [server]: [[Package]Splunk] Starting process C:\Windows\system32\msiexec.exe
    with arguments /i "C:\windows\Temp\splunk.msi" /quiet INSTALLDIR='C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder'

    Package Splunk
                Ensure = 'Present'
                Name = 'UniversalForwarder'
                Path = 'C:\windows\Temp\splunk.msi'
    			Arguments = "INSTALLDIR='C:\Program Files\SplunkUniversalForwarder' AGREETOLICENSE=Yes"

    We tried this in the PowerShell team, but we're blocked due to not being able to register with Splunk right now.
    Can you try installing the MSI outside of Package Management, and describe what you are seeing?

    Thank you

    When I execute the command in powershell it pops up the msiexec help box. If I switch to cmd it installs. I removed the /i and /quiet from the arguments as dsc automatically includes them.

    msiexec popup

    PS C:\Windows\system32> msiexec.exe /i c:\windows\temp\splunk.msi INSTALLDIR="c:\program files\SplunkUniversalForwarder"

    installs quietly

    PS C:\Windows\system32> cmd
    Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]

    C:\Windows\system32>msiexec.exe /i c:\windows\temp\splunk.msi INSTALLDIR="c:\program files\SplunkUniversalForwarder" AGR
    EETOLICENSE=Yes /quiet
