Has anybody packaged the GE Nav v 3.1 application? It is InstallShield setup.exe which contains the MSI file for install the application (server and client) , and it also installs its own SQL Server Express instance and creates its own database.
Silent installation of the application and SQL Server Express is not a problem. The problem is that I can't catch how the database is being created.
I tried to make the silent install with setup.iss file, but it doesn't work fine. I also used the Procmon.
What more can I do to make a silent install? How can I see the database creation process?

The database is almost certainly created by a script executed by the application. However, SQL Server uses .MDF as its file extension for database files so make sure you're authoring tool doesn't have that extension in its capture exclusion list.
