Guys,

Can any of you tell me how to do an admin install of a vendor msi that has no dialogs and can only be installed silently.

I've tried using a few UI switches but package still installs silently!

Maybe this isn't possible but any ideas??

No problem.

I'm actually going to rate Ledge's question, because I didn't actually know the answer before he asked - I had to work it out from a log file. I've also seen the question asked elsewhere since then.

Well it should be obvious as to not be able to "extract" the files through GUI mode as there are no dialogs to display, but if you havn't stumble on it before it could be ingenious.
Anyway it's a realy good question and the answer got out right away, well worth the points :)

Guys,

I'm back again...
I have a hp vendor msi that gives a 2715 error on an admin install....

Does this ring a bell....how could we have a 2715 error on one installation method and not on another...

Any ideas again...

A conditioned "type 18" custom action ("execute program from installed files") might do this (for example).

Check if the package has any "type 18" actions sequnced from within it's "admin" sequence tables ("AdminExecuteSequence" & "AdminUISequence").
