    If it helps, I'm using PDQ Enterprise with PDQ Deploy 13 (Release 2) listed as 13.2.0.0 in the Help>About window

    Try wrapping C:\Foo\foo.xml with single quotes instead of double quotes. That way you don't have to escape them and the parser is less likely to get confused.

    So I tried this change and now it sticks on the install step in PDQ Deploy and the log shows that it finished, but it didn't see the config file still.  I tried with and without the \ in front of 'C:\Foo\foo.xml'.  Is the user not fully logging in or something on the host?  Should I put the config file in another directory? The user PDQ Deploy is using is an admin on the server, and the files and folders are getting created as expected.  It just seems to be this step.  Would it help to give you the verbose log?

    Quick update, I fixed it sticking at install, as it wasn't using the proper single quote.  It appears copying and pasting caused that issue, and manually putting the quote in fixed that.  However, it still isn't following the config file when run via PDQ Deploy.  The install isn't completing fully  as it's missing services and the application configuration isn't loaded based on the configuration file details.  As a note, the install still works properly if I run the same command manually on the server with the setup files locally copied when I have logged in as the same user as PDQ Deploy setup to uses.

    Can you post a screen shot of the package step where you are defining all these arguments?

    Here's the step in question.  I make the XML config file the step prior and that completes successfully.  Also using the parameters manually work with that same config file so I know the config file is correct.  I didn't change anything with Conditions or Options but the screenshots are below.
