Hi,

I guess you have some spaces in ZIP package name (like "My package.zip)

Try to escape spaces in command line builder for your install cmd by adding single quotes :

pkg-rollout 'My package with spaces.zip' 

Thanks,

Andrei

Or you can  escape spaces in command line using backslashes (without single quotes):

pkg-rollout My\ package\ with\ spaces.zip

Thanks,

Andrei

That was it. Mac in altiris in new to us and when it imported it put the \ for the space which I just thought was a bad import so I removed it.  once I put it back it worked as expected.
