  • This old chestnut...

    It's almost 99% certain that the CAs are in the User sequence only. Of course, the User sequence doesn't get run in silent installations. Copy them to the Execute sequence in your transform.
  • Adding the property WISE_SQL_CONN_STR with the value DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=(local)\QTAC;UID=SA;PWD=*****;APP=QTAC1213 did the job for me to install the application silently.

    But now i have a different issue with this. This package when pushed through SCCM fails to upgrade the database(this is done using a customaction).
    But when i test the installation with the SYSTEM account(psexec -i -s cmd.exe), the installation was successful.

    I knew that SCCM performs installation using SYSTEM account. but couldn't figure out what is the difference between the SCCM installation and the SYSTEM account installation(psexec -i -s cmd.exe).

    Can you help me on this?
