I'm currently preparing OCRA 4.3.2 for deployment on Windows 2008 Server R2 SP1 and I run into a serious issue. The package consists of several files:

instmsi30.exe <- needed by setup.exe to run the MSI
ISSetup.dll <- needed by setup.exe to run the MSI
OCRA 4.3.2 Client.msi

So, when I run Setup.exe with /S switch the MSI isn't running at all. When installation is "loud" it runs fine. Running only MSI (but only from commandline, when I double click it says it needs the EXE, however I managed to get rid of that, but it doesn't help) installs the application, but then the app won't work. The MST file is not affecting anything, I'm only changing INSTALLDIR (and again, with "loud" installation everything is fine and dandy). I'm running out of ideas on how to fix this problem and any help would be greatly appreciated.

The app itself needs .NET Framework 3.5 SP1.

app don't work?

What is the error you are getting? Are there any inputs managed by setup.exe when installing the application?

(and again, with "loud" installation everything is fine and dandy)

U mean to say applying mst and istalling the applcation with UI installs and works fine? Then probably check for custom actions.

probably check for custom actionsWhat I *think* Naveen (?) means is to check whether the MSI contains CAs which appear only in the UI sequence. Obviously, this sequence doesn't get run in silent installations. If so, edit your MST so that it includes them in the Execute sequence.

Incidentally, the INSTMSI[whatever].EXE isn't required except if WI v[whatever] isn't already present on the machine.
