I cannot get the setups in the zip files silent, I do get them to install unattended but not silent, allthough an .iss file was delivered with the setup.
I tried with /s of –s
I tried with or without using the response file, with no avail.
The drivers in question can be found here, in the zip file :driver manager and drivers.zip

I recommend you don't use the response file that was delivered with the setup. Instead, record your own response file using setup.exe /r

Doing this will take you through a normal interactive install with dialogs, but at the end of the installation, a new setup.iss file will have been created in the %windir% folder.

You can then move this new .iss file into the same folder as the setup.exe executable, replacing the original one.

You will then find that if you issue the command setup.exe /s, it will be silent. (Make sure you uninstall the drivers / application first if you are using the same machine for testing).

@philippetang, I did not manage to get these installshield setups silent. I have read on forums that it is not allways possible to get installshield setups to install silently with .iss files.

That right most time i experimenced it is with a installshield setup.exe with multi msi in it.
Problem is that the recorded session only work for a part of the hole setup.

If it is such a pain to get it silent, why not repackage into a MSI? Maybe you have a perfectly valid reason for it. Just curious....

If it was possible with the msi i also prefair repackaging and most time it work but sometimes it isnt possible.
most time with msi's who are part of a multimsi setup.

so you tryed to get it work with recording of trying to install the msi individualy and hopefully with the right parameters / properties in it but even then it wil fails.
