1.24. Kurzweil 3000 patch MSI silent install instructions (Win)

Last Updated: August 2016

Applies to Versions: Kurzweil 3000 v13, v14 and v15


Following the below instructions will let you run and install the Kurzweil 3000 patch MSI silently. Technology depts may want to do this to update Kurzweil 3000 (K3000) on a large group of computers at once in an automated fashion.

1. Prior to running the MSI installer, the following msiexec command must be run on the computers in question. This command will silently uninstall the previous version of the patch on the computer. This is important, since a new MSI patch can only be run on a computer once the old MSI patch is uninstalled. The entry in Windows's Programs and Features is named patch attributed to Kurzweil Education Systems, which will be silently uninstalled by running this command. The command line is as follows (the same GUID works for v13, v14 and v15):

msiexec /x {5329B5A6-77FD-4DDD-9130-D823047D1B22} /qn

2. If you have K3000 v13, download the latest v13 patch. If you have K3000 v14, download the latest v14 patch. If you have K3000 v15, download the latest v15 patch. You can download the latest patches/updates from here: https://www.kurzweiledu.com/news-resources/software-updates.html

3. Copy the MSI file to your distribution point.

4. The following command can be used to silently install the new MSI patch (v15 example):

msiexec /i "<path>\K3000Patch15.xx.msi" /qn

5. MSI should be cached to a client machine and run locally, as opposed to a client computer running the MSI directly from a network shared folder. SCCM and other deployment systems usually have a checkbox in the GUI for setting up the job to do that.
