1.     Unpack the AdminStudio Suite

To unpack your adminstudio Installer, you will need to use the following commandline:

Adminstudio.exe /stage_only

The /stage_only parameter runs the staging part of the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation, in which the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation copies its packages to a directory that is specified by the user on the BrowseStageFolder wizard page.

If any of the packages are compressed into the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI Setup.exe file, the /stage_only option also extracts the packages from the Setup.exe file before copying them to the staging directory.

In addition, if any of the packages are located on the Web, the/stage_only option downloads the packages and adds them to the staging directory.

Note that this option does not run the packages in the Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation. Furthermore, it does not uncompress any of the packages. Thus, if you are creating a patch for an Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation and you need to generate an uncompressed .msi package for a package in your Advanced UI or Suite/Advanced UI installation, for example, use the stage-only option. Then perform an administrative installation for the .msi package.

Tip: The ISRootStagePath property stores the path to the folder that contains the copied files. To specify a default value for this property, set this property from the command line while passing the /stage_only parameter, as shown in the following example:

Setup.exe /stage_only ISRootStagePath="C:\MyStagingArea"


Note:
Use the /v option to pass command-line options and values of public properties through to Msiexec.exe.

If you want to pass more than one argument toMsiexec.exe, you can use the /v option multiple times at the command line, once for each argument. For example:

Setup.exe /v"/l*v c:\test.log" /v"MYPROPERTY1=value1" /v"/qb"

As an alternative, you can pass multiple arguments through the /v option as in the following example:

Setup.exe /v"/l*v c:\test.log MYPROPERTY1=value1 /qb"

Tip: If you pass the /v parameter at the command prompt when launching Setup.exe, any parameters that are specified for the CmdLine keyname in Setup.ini are ignored.
