I can't find any information on this. I know if I run my msi like mymsiinstaller.msi /qn, that I will have created a silent install. But what I want to do is to hardcode the /qn feature (no interface) into my MSI so that it always install silently without switches. Does anyone know how to do this?
Thanks

Hi,
one approach would be, to remove the InstallUISequence table in the MSI.
What do you want to achieve exactly with this?

Add these properties to the PROPERTY table
PropertyName = LIMITUI
Value = 1

Also Add
PropertyName = ARPNOMODIFY
Value = 1

Then create a custom action that sets
PropertyName = UILEVEL
Value = 2


I don't know if this will work, the UILEVEL may get reset... but if it does, it sets the initial UI to 3(with LIMITUI) then changes the UI to 2 immediately after launch... I've never tried this, but it's a thought...


You could try coding it using MSISetInteralUI - you're on you're own with that...
