aXz,

That looks like the same one I used in corporate environment (a couple of years ago now), and I was able to create a silent, self-contained executable, with all of the settings I needed.

There are corporate installation features, and the build options for silent installation are right at the end of the wizard - if I remember correctly.

Have a play with it and see what you can achieve.

Hope this helps,

Thanks... I will try to use this one then.
I thought it was a different version because the name was just " Internet Explorer Administration Kit 7 Download and Release Documentation"

Thanks...!

Witch feature is it to make the finished .msi file to be a total silent installation package in IEAK 7?
When I install it with the following (msiexec /i [package] /qn) it is silent until the agreement dialog pops up.

Thanks

aXy,

I created a stand-alone EXE that managed everthing and suppressed the EULA, after the experience I had packaging IE4 (a long time ago with Winstall) I was just happy with that :)

I've just ran through a quick build of IE7 and noticed that there is a newer version of the IEAK than the one I used.

The version I used doesn't offer MSI creation, but does offer a "completely silent install" which is what was used to created the EXE.

If you have an MSI, then a simple transforms should be able to suppress the EULA for you.

Hope this helps,

aXz,

It says it doesn't support hiding dialogues, but it should still complete creating the transform file, with the suppressed EULA. It's to do with disabling the dialogues as you click through the install - nothing to worry about.

Give it a try once you've created the .MST and see if that installs silently - it should do.

Thanks,

Hello again...

When I start the InstallTailor I choose to edit the mst in the Installer Editor.... Fine I go one..
Then I get a error message "\Share Point\Projects\IE7\IESetup.mst was not found."

So the installTailor dosent create any .mst
Why?

aXz,

Try opening your MSI in Orca and in the property table you will find something for accepting the EULA.

Modify this property and generate an MST that way and see if you can get any joy.

Thanks,

Hi...

When I open the MSI in ORCA I have
* Manufacturer
* ProductCode
* ProductLanguage
* ProductName
* ProductVersion
* ARPSYSTEMCOMPONENT
*ALLUSERS

In the property table...
It dont sounds like any of this have something to do with the EULA ?

Thanks!

When I open it in Orca, I get these in the Property table:

"WixUI_VerifyRemoveDlg_Back","MaintenanceTypeDlg"
"WixUI_VerifyRepairDlg_Back","MaintenanceTypeDlg"
"WixUI_WelcomeDlg_Next","LicenseAgreementDlg"
"WixUI_Wizard_Name","Setup Wizard"

which is slightly different....

Working through the dialog and associated tables (in the case of the EULA, the CheckBox table), we see the property 'LicenseAccepted'. There's also 'LICENSEKIND' which you may want to look at. Note that you'll have to create a transform for the former, as it's not a public property and cannot tehrefore be specified via a command-line argument.

By manipulating the tables in your transform, you can set the properties required and bypass showing the dialog completely. Of course, the whole exercise would be a LOT quicker in a proper MSI-authoring tool...

(BTW, interesting to see MS using Wix...)

I *hope* you mean you did a new MST, not MSI....

It sounds to me like you don't have the right MSI to start with.If it were me, I'd download the MSI again and restart the whole process.

BTW, hiding dialogs is different to altering the dialog sequence to bypass displaying a dialog altogether.
