I wat to hidde or disable some dialogs (License agreement, istalation custom or typical etc).
I have tryed to delete the dialogs but the install shield gives me error.

¿Anyone can tell me the form to not view this dialogs? I want to remove them with the msi, and not using a quiet install with msiexec etc etc...

Edit: Why wen i use msiexec always it appears the help dialog of windows installer...
Msiexec doesnt works with my msi files and i have windows installer service up...

Thanks all and sorry for my bad english.

Not sure what your MSI looks like but you could try accepting the EULA from the command line. Start with something like this and see if that works.

your.msi /ACCEPTEULA=1 /qb!

Just try changing the sequence of the dialogs.That's the wrong approach.

I can't easily get to the VM I have with IS on it but I'm pretty sure in IS you can specify which dialog is next pretty easily in the UI. If not, you'll need to go to the Direct Editor, get the names of the dialogs from the 'Dialog' table and then alter the 'Argument' cell for that dialog's 'Next' button in the 'ControlEvent' table. For example, a typical MSI might have these rows in the 'ControlEvent' table:"AdminWelcome","Next","NewDialog","AdminNetworkLocation","1",""
"AdminWelcome","Cancel","SpawnDialog","CancelSetup","1",""
The column names are Dialog_ (which keys into the 'Dialog' table), Control_, Event, Argument, Condition and Ordering.

Now, this is a nonsense situation but let's say we want to NOT display the AdminNetworkLocation dialog but go straight to the ReadyToInstall dialog. We just change the 'Argument' cell from 'AdminNetworkLocation' to 'ReadyToInstall'.

Next up, your MSIExec error occurs because you have specified an invalid switch and/or argument. Post the command line you're trying to use and we'll try and correct it.
