-That script is thrown in the same network folder
-There is also a ZAP file that is created for each script that is written. That ZAP contains the FriendlyName and SetupCommand.
-For SetupCommand there are two different arguments we use:
---For VBS scripts it is: "C:\Windows\System32\cscript.exe networklocation\script.vbs"
---For Powershell it is: "C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe networklocation\script.ps1"
-The ZAP file then gets pushed to the control panel, install program from network area using group policy.
-The users just open up the control panel and install programs through the control panel
I think you miss the point of the AP file here. It uses a PS1 to do an install of an exe or other file. You must place you file in the install folder and write a vbs or exe to install the file. You cannot wrap the install script in an exe and have it work as a ZAP installer.
So I should be able to just use the PS1 script that I wrote in the ZAP file as one method of installation, but when I try to do that it doesn't work(a command prompt flashes very briefly, no error message in it).
The alternative based on your previous post is to use an MSI and avoid ZAP files altogether except I don't know how (especially with the MSI installer tool in PSS2015) to make it run the PS1 file instead of just pushing it to a folder.
You cannot use a script in a zap to install features. YOU can only install the script.
Actually this has nothing at all to do with scripting. It is a systems issue relating to how to use a Windows GP feature to accomplish a distribution task. I recommend posting you issue in the Windows AD/GPO forum as they can help you understand how this is intended to work.
