Hi,

A custom action, calling an exe which has to be installed using an ISS file.

I can call the exe with no problem but am having difficulties calling the iss file in the command line.

Format i have to use (working manually) is path\file.exe -s /f1"Path\file.iss"

In the EXE and command line, this resumes to [FOLDER]\file.exe /s /f1[FOLDER]\file.iss
I also try /f1file.iss (there has to be no space between /f1 otherwise it's not working when i do it manually.

Anybody knows the correct format when calling an iss file in the command line?

Thks

If you log the install, you should see the command that the MSI CA is trying to call. That should tip you off on your syntax problems.

Problem solved, way to do was:
[FOLDER]\file.exe -s /f1"[FOLDER]\file.iss"

Anybody knows the correct format when calling an iss file in the command line?One has to ask the question, why are you running an install inside an MSI? You would save yourself a world of pain if you were to capture that install and create your own MSI. As it is, you're launching a "black box" over which you have next to no control.
