Have you had a look at the package knowledgebase?

Yes, but the silent install link is not good, and that is what I am looking for primarily.

Thanks

In the 'Notes' section, it says The main app can be extracted to an MSI/MST.meaning that you can employ the normal '/Qx' arguments to MSIExec.EXE.

But the information further up the page on the KB states:

There are 2 parts: pre-requisites and the app. The main app can be extracted to an MSI/MST. For the pre-requisite you can extract the files, then modify the *.hta file to run automatically.

Are you having issues silently installing an MSI/MST, or the pre-reqs?

You say that the link on the KB is dead, but if you went to the 'Communities' homepage (the first part of the URL) and then searched for the correct term you would find this page.

Hope that helps,

pletcgm wrote a great summary of how to modify the .hta file to make the prerequisites run silently.

You can find it here

Good luck,

It's the pre-req that I was looking silent install for.Is there anything else about your predicament that you'd like us to guess at? How hard would it have been to write: "Does anybody know how I can make the pre-requisite applications for Bentley 8i install silently?" If you had, you'd be a day further in than you are now.

Owen,

That information is also in the Package KB entry for Bentley View linked above by 'andemats', not sure that the OP will be able to use the information from your link if they've seen it already and ignored it [:D]
