Hi, I'm trying to install easy-mark panduit software.
It uses an exe that wraps an .msi
when i look at the MSI properties, I dont see any property relating to serial number, any ideas on how i can create a silent install package?
also when launching the MSI, it never prompts for a serial however opening the application shows as unregistered.
when launching .exe, the first window is to enter a serial, then in proceeds with the install (msi) and results in a registered application.

Hi,
One possibility is using procmon(Process Monitor) or Process Explorer to see what command line is passed to the embedded msi via the msiexec.exe process that the setup.exe most likely starts. I suspect that the serial number is passed as a command to the msi from the setup.exe.

You could also set the "voicewarmup" parameters globally and see if the resulting msi log file picks it up...

    I think it shoves the files in your %temp% or Windir\Temp. Fiddle around with it till you get PROPERTYS at the end of the msi log, hopefully you will find what you need. Alternatively you could just put the serial into he registry where it needs to go? If its in plain sight and it works?
