Hi All. Currently i am working on an application Intel IntelMPI. I have provided with exe as a source file and i extracted it but it doesn't have  MSI in it. Also i am unable to find the switches for silent installation. I am writing a vb script to install it silently. So can anyone help me?

You will need to recapture the exe, to convert it into a MSI. But I would recommened spending 1/2 a day to find that silent switch - no point reinventing the wheel.

Have you tried setup.exe /?






To recapture you will need Admin Studio Repackager or use Bobs *free* App Deploy (whooray for the old days) Repackager. Not sure if its Win7 supported though.


Good luck.

  • Im sooo lazy, lol.

    Check out the below (:

    Use installation monitor (top radio button), its pretty good in the 2012 version.
    Use a clean machine etc, a virtual machine would be best, then you can snap back to clean states.
